We have clarified the magnetic and electrical properties of U7Ge, U5Ge3, U3Ge4 and UGe2, measuring the electrical resistivity, thermoelectric power, Hall coefficient, magnetic susceptibility, magnetization and specific heat. U7Ge and U5Ge3, which are Pauli paramagnetic compounds, become superconductive below 1.40 K and 0.99 K, respectively. The latter compounds U3Ge4 and UGe2 indicate ferromagnetism. Anisotropic properties of UGe2 are well reflected in the electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and magnetization.
