Abstract

Magnetic properties of intermetallic compounds containing both uranium and a 3d metal (Fe, Co) are summarized and discussed. It was shown that the ordered magnetism of the U and 3d-metal sublattices can coexist in the same compound (e.g. with 2–17 and 1–12 stoichiometries) even at room and elevated temperatures.
