We present a wide analysis of both the crystal structure peculiarities and the different aspects of magnetic properties, leading to better understand the many magneto-elastic effects exhibited by the MM’X series of transition metal phosphides and arsenides. Moreover, systematic neutron diffraction experiments have been performed thus allowing anticipate on the different contributions to entropy. Besides high magnetic field measurement namely under pressure were performed to quantify the most pertinent (T, P, H) phase diagrams. Finally, fair insights of the electronic polarisation instabilities were deduced from KKR-CPA band structure calculations. All the previous fundamental analyses lead to comfort the very interesting magneto-caloric contributions exhibited by the MM’X series. Comparison is made with other high performance MCE systems.
