The influences of hydrogen absorption on the Curie temperature T c and the isothermal magnetic entropy change for La 0.5Pr0.5(Fe0.88Si0.12)13 have been investigated, because the magnetocaloric effects have been confirmed to be enhanced after a partial substitution of Pr for La in La(Fe 0.88Si0.12)13. The value of Tc for La0.5Pr0.5(Fe0.88Si0.12) 13Hy increases from 185 to 324 K with increasing y from 0 to 1.6. The maximum value of the isothermal magnetic entropy change ΔSmMAX is slightly decreased by hydrogen absorption. However, ΔSmMAX = -26 J/kg K in a magnetic field change of 5 T for La0.5Pr0.5(Fe0.88Si 0.12)13H1.6 is still larger than the value of -23 J/kg K for La(Fe0.88Si0.12)13H 1.5 having almost the same value of Tc. Consequently, ΔSmMAX of the La0.5Pr 0.5(Fe0.88Si0.12)13Hy is larger than that of La(Fe0.88Si0.12)13H y in a wide temperature range covering room temperature.
