Abstract

Single crystals of LnAg(y)X(4-y) (Ln = La, Ce; X = Al, Ga; y 0.72) were synthesized by aluminum or gallium flux and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. LnAg(y)X(4-y) (Ln = La, Ce; X = Al, Ga; y 0.72) crystallize in the tetragonal space group I4/mmm (No. 139) with lattice parameter a = 4.3 and c = 10.7 , Z = 2. CeAg(0.72)Al(3.28) and CeAg(0.67)Ga(3.33) are metallic, and magnetic measurements indicate that they both order ferromagnetically near 3 K.
