We report results of measurements of the magnetic susceptibility, the electrical resistivity, the crystal and electronic structures of the polycrystalline intermetallic Gd (Ni1-xCox)3 compounds. The influence of substitution of Co for Ni atoms is reflected in an increase of the lattice parameters and unit cell volume. The Curie temperature TC changes between 114 K for GdNi3 and 615 K for GdCo3. The electronic structure have been studied by using X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). The XPS spectra in the valence band region show a hybridization of the states near the Fermi level (EF). We also observe a remarkable decrease of the density of states near EF and the shift of 4f Gd peaks in the energy scale for the Co – rich compounds.
