[′skəd·ə‚rə‚dīt]
(mineralogy)
(Co,Ni)As3 A tin-white mineral with metallic luster composed of cobalt and nickel arsenides; crystallizes in the isometric system but commonly is massive; hardness is 5.5-6 on Mohs scale, and specific gravity is 6.6; it is a minor ore of cobalt and nickel.

Skutterudites consist of metals such as iridium, cobalt, or rhodium combined with phosphorus, arsenic, or antimony.
Topics ranged from metallothionein to skutterudites, with much in between.
Some specific topics explored are enhanced cooling in doped semiconductors due to nonlinear Peltier effects, thermoelectric properties of mixed-metal tellurides, and investigations of bonding in Skutterudites by electron energy-loss spectroscopy.
Dependence of the elastic moduli of skutterudites on density and temperature Gerda Rogl
The novel misfit-layered cobalt oxides [3], filled skutterudites [4, 5], and novel Zintl-phase [6, 7] compounds provide examples of such control.
