We have investigated the magnetic properties of the intermetallic compounds CeT2Si2 and UT2Si2, with T a transition metal. From our measurements we have determined a trend from Pauli-paramagnetism via antiferromagnetism to canted antiferromagnetism with increasing number of d-electrons. Superconductivity, like in CeCu2Si2, may be found near the paramagnetism/antiferromagnetism boundary.
