New compounds in the K-Ag, K-Ni, and K-Pd systems have been found to form at high pressure. Such compounds are of interest because it is possible that potassium may be incorporated into Earth’s core, which is composed primarily of the transition metal iron. Furthermore, unusual crystal and electronic structures may result because of the novel chemical composition of the alkali metal-transition metal compounds.
