    The antiferromagnetism of single crystals of dilute alloys of V, Mn and Re in Cr has been studied at 95°K and 300°K by neutron diffraction. The addition of V causes the diffraction peaks to decrease in intensity and move away from (100), while Mn and Re cause them to increase and approach (100) so that, above a certain concentration, the oscillatory magnetization becomes commensurate with the lattice. The resistivity and thermoelectric power have also been studied as a function of temperature between 4.2°K and 450°K. Pronounced anomalies were observed in the transport properties just below the Néel temperatute, and these are interpreted in terms of the magnitude and position of the magnetic superzone energy gaps and the change in magnetic disorder scattering.
