Abstract: Taking profit that the ternary indides Ce2+ÎµPd2-ÎµIn form two branches of solid solutions allowing to access to ferromagnetic (FM, Îµ > 0) or anti-ferromagnetic (AFM, Îµ < 0) ground states depending on the relative Ce/Pd concentration 'Îµ' , we have tested the possibility of a Shastry-Sutherland phase formation by electron doping the trivalent In lattice with tetravalent Sn. Starting from the AFM, Îµ < 0 side provides the lowest electron concentration conditions increasing the sensitivity to electron doping. For such a purpose low temperature thermal and magnetic properties were investigated on Ce2+ÎµPd2-ÎµIn1-xSnx alloys within the 0 â‰¤ x â‰¤ 0.6 range of concentration.
