The first characterization of the physical properties of U(1-x)Np(x)Pd(2)Al(3) and U(1-x)Pu(x)Pd(2)Al(3) solid solutions (with 0.005 </= x </= 0.9) obtained by resistivity measurements (between 1.4 K and 300 K) are presented and summarized. For very low Np doping (x = 0.005) a superconducting transition is still observed at 1.5 K, whereas for x >/= 0.01 this transition is absent or shifted below our temperature range. The doping effects on the magnetic and Kondo lattice behaviors of UPd(2)Al(3) are discussed.
