  Abstract We present a theoretical analysis of the magnetic phase diagram of CeTi1-xScxGe and GdFe1-xCoxSi as a function

of the temperature and the Sc and Co concentration x, respectively. CeScGe and GdCoSi, as many other RTX

(R=rare earth, T=transition metal, X=p-block element) compounds, present a tetragonal crystal structure

where bilayers of R are separated by layers of T and X. While GdFeSi and CeTi0.75Sc0.25Ge are ferromagnetic,

CeScGe and GdCoSi order antiferromagnetically with the R 4f magnetic moments on the same bilayer aligned

ferromagnetically and magnetic moments in nearest neighbouring bilayers aligned antiferromagnetically. The

antiferromagnetic transition temperature TN decreases with decreasing concentration x in both compounds and

for low enough values of x the compounds show a ferromagnetic behavior. Based on these observations we

construct a simplified model Hamiltonian that we solve numerically for the specific heat and the magnetization.

We find a good qualitative agreement between the model and the experimental data. Our results show that the

main magnetic effect of the Sc→Ti and Co→Fe substitution in these compounds is consistent with a change in

the sign of the exchange coupling between magnetic moments in neighbouring bilayers. We expect a similar

phenomenology for other magnetic RTX compounds with the same type of crystal structure.
