The structural and magnetic properties of the system La1−xYxMn2Si2 (0≤x≤1) were investigated. Both LaMn2Si2 and YMn2Si2 crystallize in the ThCr2Si2-type tetragonal structure and form a complete solid solution without any change in the crystal structure. Magnetization studies suggest that ferromagnetic ordering occurs for x < 0.2 and antiferromagnetic ordering sets in for x»0.2. Complex magnetic behaviour is indicated for x=0.2. The nature of the magnetic ordering in these compounds depends on the Mn-Mn distance.
