The strongly anisotoropic resistivity, ρc/ρa = 13-16, was found in CePtSb and CePdSb and the La homologues. The carrier concentrations in the Ce compounds are less than 0.04/f.u. The specific heat of CePtSb reveals a magnetic transition at 6.8 K above the ferromagnetic transition at TC = 4.7 K. Furthermore, a distinct jump in C(T) is observed at TC = 17.5 K for CePdSb in addition to the broad anomaly at around 10 K previously reported.
