The PrFe10.5V1.5 intermetallics and their nitrides were successfully synthesized. In terms of magnetocrystalline anisotropy, PrFe10.5V1.5Nx are characteristics of an easy axis from 0 K to Curie temperature, with an anisotropy field up to 152.9 kOe at 1.5 K and 108.4 kOe at room temperature. In combination with a high Curie temperature of 820 K and a large saturation magnetization of 157.46 emu/g at 1.5 K and 142.77 emu/g at room temperature, these nitrides are favorable for permanent magnet applications. As a preliminary attempt, magnetic powders based on PrFe10.5V1.5Nx were obtained with a maximum energy product of 16.0 and 28.8 MGOe at room temperature and 1.5 K. respectively.
