An explanation for the absence of ternary antimonides of the type AIIBIVC 2 V was sought in terms of the chemical interaction and polarization of the bonds. It was shown that the compound ZnSnSb2 could exist and it was then obtained experimentally. The formation of a tetrahedral structure in ternary compounds was considered from the point of view of the sums of the covalent radii and the polarization of the bonds. The existence of a series of as yet unknown ternary compounds with tetrahedral structure is predicted.
