The purpose of the work described is to predict the structural parameters of UCoGa, determine its ground state and investigate the bulk transport and thermal properties of a single crystal. UCoGa, which crystallises in the hexagonal ZrNiAl structure, orders ferromagnetically below 47 K with ordered 5f moments along the c axis. Strong anisotropic transport properties have also been detected in other UTX compounds which suggests that they are caused by general anisotropy due to crystal structure and the Fermi-surface anisotropy.
