Abstract: Provided is a novel production method for producing silicon clathrate II. In the production method for producing silicon clathrate II, in a reaction system in which a Na—Si alloy containing Na and Si and an Na getter agent coexist so as not to be in contact with each other, the Na—Si alloy is heated and Na evaporated from the Na—Si alloy is thus caused to react with the Na getter agent to reduce an amount of Na in the Na—Si alloy.

Abstract: In a coil component, in an upper coil portion, a winding end portion constituting an end portion is connected to a lead-out conductor. Accordingly, the lead-out conductor can absorb heat from the winding end portion and can dissipate heat to the outside via a terminal electrode. Moreover, the lead-out conductor is formed to cover a winding adjacent portion. Accordingly, heat can also be absorbed from the winding adjacent portion and can be dissipated to the outside via the terminal electrode. That is, in the coil component described above, since the lead-out conductor absorbs heat not only from the winding end portion but also from the winding adjacent portion, improvement of heat dissipation properties is realized in the coil component.
