dc.description.abstract <p>Magnetic and crystallographic properties of Gd<sub>5</sub>Sb<sub>0.5</sub>Ge<sub>3.5</sub> were investigated using dc magnetization, ac magnetic susceptibility, and heat capacity of an oriented single crystal, combined with temperature and magnetic field dependent x-ray powder diffraction. The compound undergoes an unusual magnetostructural transition at 40 K and a nonmagnetic second-order transition around 63 K. The detailed crystallographic study of Gd<sub>5</sub>Sb<sub>0.5</sub>Ge<sub>3.5</sub> shows that contrary to the R<sub>5</sub>(Si<sub>x</sub>Ge<sub>1−x</sub>)<sub>4</sub> systems (R is a rare-earth metal), the structural transition occurs without shear displacements of the <sub>∞</sub>2[R<sub>5</sub>T<sub>4</sub>] slabs (T=Si, Ge, and Sb), and a substantial volume change (−0.5%) does not lead to a change in crystallographic symmetry. The first-principles electronic structure calculations show higher interslab than intraslab ferromagnetic exchange interaction indicating that Sm<sub>5</sub>Ge<sub>4</sub> type of structure supports a ferromagnetic ground state in Gd<sub>5</sub>Sb<sub>0.5</sub>Ge<sub>3.5</sub>.</p>
