The first-ever solid-state material reported to contain iron-bismuth bonds, FeBi2, has been prepared by a team led by Danna E. Freedman of Northwestern University (ACS Cent. Sci. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acscentsci.6b00287).

Iron and bismuth each react with multiple elements across the periodic table but are largely immiscible with each other, despite the fact that iron readily combines with all of the other group 15 elements to form superconducting . . .
