We report the experimental study on the structural and magnetic properties of a new ternary intermetallic compound Sm2AgSi3. The properties of the sample were investigated in detail by X-ray diffraction, dc–magnetization, and heat capacity measurements. The polycrystalline compound of Sm2AgSi3 crystallizes in the ThSi2-type tetragonal structure (space group I41/amd). The temperature–dependent dc–magnetization and heat capacity results demonstrate that the compound undergoes ferromagnetic…
