 Title    Synthesis, Structure, and Magnetic Properties of EuAgCd and YbAgCd  
 Abstract    New intermetallic compounds EuAgCd and YbAgCd were synthesized in quantitative yield by reaction of the elements in sealed tantalum tubes in a high-frequency furnace. Both com­ pounds were investigated by X-ray diffraction on powders and single crystals: KHg2 type, Imma, a = 490.41(8), b = 771.0(1), c = 834.4(2) pm, wR2 = 0.0624, 255 F values, 12 variables for EuAgCd, and MgZn2 type, Pb^/mmc, a = 584.66(5), c = 946.83(9) pm, wR2 = 0.0502, 187 F 2 values, 11 variables for YbAgCd. Owing to the very small difference in scattering power, no long range ordering of the silver and cadmium atoms is evident from the X-ray data, although Ag-Cd ordering is expected. The silver and cadmium atoms randomly occupy the mercury and zinc positions of the KHg2 and MgZn2 type structures, respectively. In EuAgCd the [AgCd] substructure consists of strongly puckered, orthorhombically distorted Ag3 Cd3 hexagons, while a three-dimensional network of face-and comer-sharing tetrahedra is observed in YbAgCd. The rare earth atoms fill the space between the Ag3 Cd3 hexagons (EuAgCd) or within the three-dimensional tetrahedral network (YbAgCd). Magnetic susceptibility measurements in­ dicate Pauli paramagnetism for YbAgCd and Curie-Weiss behavior above 60 K for EuAgCd with an experimental magnetic moment of 7.82(3) /j b/Eu indicating divalent ytterbium and europium. Ferromagnetic ordering at Tc = 28.0(5) K is observed for EuAgCd. At 2 K and 5 T the saturation magnetization is 5.85(5) /iß/Eu.

 Title    Synthesis and Structure of RE2Rh2Cd (RE = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm)  
 Abstract    New intermetallic cadmium compounds /?£2Rh2Cd (r e = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm) were syn­ thesized from the elements in sealed tantalum tubes in a high-frequency furnace. They were characterized through X-ray powder data: Mo2FeB2 type, space group P4/mbm, Z = 2. Single crystal data of the cerium compound (a = 762.8(1), c = 377.8(1) pm, wR2 = 0.0662, 199 F2 values, and 13 variable parameters) revealed small defects on the rhodium position leading to the composition Ce2R h186(3)Cd for the investi­ gated crystal. According to the course of the cell volumes Ce2Rh2Cd may be classified as a mixed-valent compound. The Ce2Rh2Cd structure is an intergrowth of slightly distorted A1B2 and CsCl related slabs of compositions CeRh2 and CeCd. Within the CeRh2 slab short Ce-Rh contacts (284-300 pm) are indicative of strong Ce-Rh bonding. The Rh-Rh distance within the A1B2 re­ lated slab is 289 pm.
