This chapter provides an overview of the progress in the synthesis and characterization of Zintl phases with d-metals. It outlines the progress from a few compounds such as Ca14MnBi11 to the number of present-day examples. It presents the field and provides examples of a number of applications of these compounds including the most recent work on thermoelectric applications.
