Design of the thermoelectric materials on a basis of the supramolecular clathrates


The review provides the analysis of the perspectives of creating novel thermoelectric materials. While general problems associated with the search for new thermoelectric materials and prospects of their industrial applications are briefly discussed, the design of such materials on the base of supramolecular clathrates following the ideas of the “phonon glass - electronic crystal” concept is the central topic of the paper. Crystal and electronic structure and transport properties of the clathrates based on the Group 14 elements are discussed, and the directions of their functional property optimisation are highlighted.
