Using X-ray diffraction, DSC and magnetization measurements, a magnetostrutural map of the (Mn,Fe)(3)(Si,P) system was assembled and reported in the current paper. Besides the already known cubic phase for Mn3-xFexSi system and the tetragonal and orthorhombic phases for the Mn3-xFexP system, a novel hexagonal phase has been observed for Mn3-xFexSi1-yPy, within the approximate range of 0.2 < x < 2.0 and 0.2 < y < 0.9. Magnetization measurements both confirm and further detail the already known properties of the Mn3-xFexSi and Mn3-xFexP systems.
