We report on resistivity, specific heat and magnetization measurements carried out on the novel compound CeCu2Mg, which crystallizes in the hexagonal GdPt2Sn structure type. CeCu2Mg shows typical Kondo lattice features, with a very high γ value of about 1000mJ/mol K2and a characteristic temperature TK of about 5 K. Long-range magnetic order does not set in above 1.5 K.

Keywords: CeCu2Mg; Heavy fermion; Kondo lattice
