The magnetic behaviour of the Cr100-yAly alloy system around the triple point concentration yt ≈ 2 has recently attracted renewed interest amongst Cr alloys . The temperature of the triple point concentration on the Cr100-yAly magnetic phase diagram can be suppressed to below 2 K by the addition of Mo for y fixed at 1.6 at.% Al to form a (Cr98.4Al1.6)100-xMox ternary alloy system. Previous studies on the (Cr98.4Al1.6)100-xMox alloy system through electrical resistivity (ρ), Seebeck coefficient (S) and specific heat (Cp) showed the existence of a possible quantum critical point around 4.5 at.% Mo . The present study was undertaken in order to extend the previous findings on this alloy system, through magnetic susceptibility (χ) measurements. Samples in the form of cylindrical discs were cooled from 300 K to 4 K in a zero magnetic field. Measurements were then taken from 4 K to 300 K in a constant magnetic field of 100 Oe. Alloys in the concentration range 0 ≤ x ≤ 3.0 depict anomalous χ(T)-behaviour in the temperature range of the Néel transition. This is attributed to local magnetic moments formed around the impurity atoms . Néel temperatures obtained from χ(T) measurements decrease with Mo concentration and disappear near a critical concentration xc = 4.5, where antiferromagnetism is suppressed to below 4 K. The present results corroborate the previous findings on this alloy system .
