The ternary compounds described by the formula RM2X2, where R is a rare earth, M is transition metal and X is Si or Ge, have been extensively studied1–6. These compounds crystallize in the ThCr2Si2 structure of the space group 14/mmml. Previous work reports that the compounds were ferromagnets or antiferromagnets depending on the transition metal2–4. The present study is a systematic investigation of the magnetic properties of RCo2Si2 and RCo2Ge2 compounds and a comparison of their magnetic properties.
