Syntheses of both binary M[subscript]5X[subscript]3 hosts and M[subscript]5X[subscript]3Z interstitial compounds with the same Mn[subscript]5Si[subscript]3 structure type was extended to rare-earth metal tetrelides. The variety of interstitials Z that were incorporated into these host binaries allowed the modulation of the bonding and properties of the host compound without greatly altering or breaking up the structure. Investigations on the binaries also revealed that both La[subscript]5Ge[subscript]3 and La[subscript]5Pb[subscript]3 exist in the Mn[subscript]5Si[subscript]3-type, and La[subscript]5Sn[subscript]3 exists ...
