Single crystals of Ce2PdGa12 have been synthesized in Ga flux and characterized by X-ray diffraction. This compound crystallizes in the tetragonal P4/nbm space group, Z=2 with lattice parameters of a=6.1040(2)Å and c=15.5490(6)Å. It shows strongly anisotropic magnetism and orders antiferromagnetically at TN∼11 K. A field-induced metamagnetic transition to the ferromagnetic state is observed below TN. Structure-property relationships with the related heavy-fermion antiferromagnet CePdGa6 are discussed. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
