Abstract

In this paper we investigate the magnetocaloric properties of polycrystalline MnBi at its magnetostructural transition at 628 K. The samples, prepared by rapid quenching and annealing, present 86 wt% of the hexagonal MnBi phase. The entropy change at the transition is found to be Δs =17.6 Jkg-1K-1 and the magnetic field shifts the transition temperature of 2.6 KT-1. Despite the relevant magnetocaloric properties, the temperature hysteresis, of 19 K, is quite large for magnetothermal application.
