Abstract: Specific heat, magnetocaloric effect and magnetization experiments were performed on the 5f-electron system U(Ru0.96Rh0.04)(2)Si-2. This compound exhibits a non-magnetic ground state with a single magnetic field-induced phase between H = 26 and 38 T. We show that the transition into this phase is first-order as revealed by a large irreversible specific heat anomaly and asymmetric magnetocaloric effect. A comparative analysis with the valence transition compound YbInCu4, where similar irreversibility and asymmetry exists, is presented. (c) 2006 Published by Elsevier B.V.
