dc.description.abstract The structural and magnetic properties of transition metal-doped Mn3SnC are studied with an aim to understand the effect of transition metal atom on magnetostructural properties of the antiperovskite compound. The doped Mn2.8T0.2SnC (T = Cr, Fe, Co, Ni and Cu) compounds show a distinctly different magnetic behavior which can be related to electronic filling of the d band of the transition metal atom. While Cr and Fe doped Mn3SnC show properties similar to that of Mn3SnC, the Co, Ni and Cu doped compounds exhibit nucleation of secondary phases which are devoid of carbon and having Heusler and DO19 type hexagonal structure. A strong magnetic interaction is observed between the impurity phases and the major antiperovskite phase leading to a sharp decrease in magnetostructural transition temperature of the antiperovskite phase and a cluster glassy ground state. en_US
