The electronic and magnetic properties of the ternary cerium compounds Ce2PdGe6 and CezPtGe6 are reported within the context of measurements of electrical resistivity, magnetoresistivity, and magnetic susceptibility. Ce2PdGe6 orders magnetically at TN = 11.5 K, and Ce2PtGe6 at TN = 9.9 K. In the ordered region, the magnetization as well as the magnetoresistance reveal anomalous behaviour for both compounds, which are ascribed to metamagnetic transitions into a field-induced ferromagnetic state.
