The MnCoGe alloy can crystallize in either the hexagonal Ni2In- or the orthorhombic TiNiSi-type of structure. In both phases MnCoGe behaves like a typical ferromagnet with a second-order magnetic phase transition. For MnCoGeBx with B on interstitial positions, we discover a giant magnetocaloric effect associated with a single first-order...

Substitution of some Cr for Mn atoms in MnCoGe was employed to control the magnetic and structural transitions in this alloy to coincide, leading to a single first-order magnetostructural transition from the ferromagnetic to the paramagnetic state with a giant magnetocaloric effect observed near room temperature. Further increase in the Cr...
