The temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity of Ce0.2La0.8PdSn suggest that CePdSn is a dense Kondo compound. The experimental Γ value is moderately large, 60 mJ/mol K2. The magnetic structure of CePdSn determined by neutron diffraction is of a simple spiral one with the magnetic moment of (1±0.3)μB. The dense Kondo compound YbNiSn is a weak ferromagnet, which originates from the canting of antiferromagnetic sublattice within the ac-plane.
