The new ternary intermetallic compound Tb2PtSi3 crystallizing in the ordered hexagonal structure has been studied by means of susceptibility, magnetization, magnetic relaxation, specific heat and electrical resistivity measurements. The results reveal that Tb2PtSi 3 orders ferromag- netically below Tc=22 K and undergoes an additional magnetic phase transition near T1=10 K. The distribution of two kinds of Tb atoms at crystallographically non-equivalent positions seems to be responsible for the complex magnetic structure. Below Tc, clearly irreversible magnetism and the phenomenon of long time magnetic relaxation are observed in this system and discussed in terms of domain-wall pinning effects.
