YbBiPt has a low temperature linear specific heat coefficient of 8 J/mol Yb K2 and a small specific heat anomaly at 0.4 K. We discuss new experiments on the specific heat of diluted YbBiPt, magnetic field dependent effects and electrical resistivity in pure YbBiPt. We argue that in this material the Kondo and crystal field energy scales are small and of comparable magnitude, placing YbBiPt in the same class as many uranium heavy electron compounds. © 1993.
