Interaction of antimony with Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 high Tc superconductor has been investigated using X-ray Photoelectron and Ultraviolet Photoelectron Spectroscopy. Bi-O and more importantly Cu-O bonds remain unaffected. The unreactive nature of the interface could be explained on the basis of difference in the heat of oxide formation between Sb2O5 and constituents. The results project the possibility of using antimony as a contact metal.
