Results of electrical resistance and magnetic susceptibility measurements on Ce2Bi, Ce2Sb, CeScGe, CeScSi and CeSb2 are presented. Ce2Bi and Ce2Sb have antiferromagnetic transitions at low temperatures, while CeSb2, CeScGe and CeScSi have ferromagnetic transitions, CeScGe having a Tc = 46 K. The data are analyzed with respect to the similarities of the two crystal structure groups that these materials fall into: CeSb2 having the LaSb2 structure and the other materials all having the La2Sb structure.
