Abstract  In this work, we tuned the magnetostructural transformation and the coupled magnetocaloric properties of Mn48-xVxNi42Sn10 (x=0, 1, 2, and 3) ferromagnetic shape memory alloys prepared by means of partial replacement of Mn by V. It is observed that the martensitic transformation temperatures decrease with the increase of V content. The shift of the transition temperatures to lower temperatures driven by the applied field, the metamagnetic behavior, and the thermal hysteresis indicates the first-order nature for the magnetostructural transformation. The entropy changes with a magnetic field variation of 0-5 T are 15.2, 18.8, and 24.3 J·kg-1·K-1 for the x=0, 1, and 2 samples, respectively. The tunable martensitic transformation temperature, enhanced field driving capacity, and large entropy change suggest that Mn48-xVxNi42Sn10 alloys have a potential for applications in magnetic cooling refrigeration.
