Magnetic properties and magnetic entropy changes of La(Fe1-xMnx)11.5Si1.5Hy compounds are investigated. Their Curie temperatures are adjusted to room temperature by partial Mn substitution for Fe and hydrogen absorption in 1-atm (1 atm=1.01325×105 Pa) hydrogen gas. Under a field change from 0 T to 2 T, the maximum magnetic entropy change for La(Fe0.99Mn0.01)11.5Si1.5H1.61 is -11.5 J/kg. The suitable Curie temperature and large value of Δ Sm make it an attractive potential candidate for the room temperature magnetic refrigeration application.
