The effects of Si on the martensitic transformation and magnetic transition of Co41Ni32Al27-xSix alloys were investigated by optical micrography, DSC and VSM methods. The structure type of martensitic phase was determined by X-ray diffraction. Martensitic transformation temperatures of Co41Ni32Al27 alloys are obviously elevated by the substitute of Si for Al element, the addition of 1% Si can increase the martensitic transformation temperature by about 50 K. Curie points are also increased with increasing of Si content, 1% Si can increase the Curie temperature by 10 K. Martensites are all of ordered L10 structure, but the unit cell volumes are decreased with increasing Si content. The reason for above results were discussed.
