Abstract

The ternary intermetallic magnetic compound UFe(6)Ge(6) was studied by single crystal X-ray diffraction and 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy. UFe(6)Ge(6) was found to melt congruently at 950 C and to crystallise in space group P6/mmm. Magnetisation measurements suggest two transitions: one at 322(5) K reminiscent of an antiferromagnetic ordering and another at 230(10) K. According to 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy there is a transition at 322(5) K associated with the ordering of the Fe moments which do not undergo any noticeable reordering at lower temperatures. Thus the transition at 230 K is tentatively attributed to the ordering of the U-sublattice.
