In this work we will present a recipe to find new Topological Insulators (TIs) based on bonds, bands, symmetry and heavy atoms. A big issue concerning the compounds known up to now is the control of the bulk carrier density to produce truly insulating samples in the bulk. Using concepts from chemistry and supported by density-functional calculations, we want to motivate an extended search for new compounds with tunable bulk properties.
