Early rare earth metals (La, Ce, Pr, Nd) combined with late first row transition metals (Fe, Co, Ni) can produce low melting eutectic mixtures. For instance, a 75:25 mole percent mixture of La and Ni forms a eutectic that melts at 532 ├ÁC. We are investigating these eutectics as promising metal flux synthesis media for magnetic compounds containing two paramagnetic elements. The structures and magnetic properties of several new phases grown in La/Ni flux are discussed.
