The Engel–Brewer theory for transition metals has been extended to transition metal silicides. It is shown that the promoted electronic state correlates well with the properties of the silicides. From these correlations we are able to predict the effect of deviations from stoichiometry on disilicide resistivity and the existence of other silicide crystal structures.
