Abstract

A new ternary compound Al0.35GdGe2 has been synthesized and studied by means of X-ray powder diffraction technique. The ternary compound Al0.35GdGe2 crystallizes in the orthorhombicwith the CeNiSi2 structure type (space group Cmcm, a=4.0874(2) Å, b=16.1499(5) Å,c=3.9372(1) Å, Z=4, and Dcalc=8.007 g/cm3).
