As can be seen from Table 5, the relationship between the standard thermodynamic functions of atomization, formation, and formation from appropriate binary compounds (Tl2X and TlHal) for all ternary compounds is as follows:
In bond-orbital model in binary compounds, if the imaginary (polar) component and real (covalent) compound are present, then the bond energy gap
Furthermore, it is not restricted to the formation of binary compounds; ternary and quaternary compound semiconductors have been formed.
Production of ternary compounds of III-nitrides such as Indium gallium nitride (InGaN) allows the band gap to be tuneable between the band gaps of two III-nitride binary compounds by varying the ratio of the group III elements within the semiconductor.
