Antimonides (sometimes called stibnides) are compounds of antimony with more electropositive elements. The antimonide ion is Sb3−.

Some antimonides are semiconductors, e.g. those of the boron group. Many antimonides are flammable or decomposed by oxygen when heated since the antimonide ion is a reducing agent.
