The significance of magnetic materials has grown exponentially with the technological advances achieved over the past few decades. These materials have become integral to daily life, with applications that span from decorative purposes to data storage. However, despite their abundance, magnetism remains a largely underexplored area. This lack of understanding can be attributed largely to the complexity of magnetic systems and the intricacy resulting from the myriad of factors which influence them. Given that most magnetic systems exhibit metallic properties, there is a notable emphasis on exploring the magnetic characteristics of intermetallic compounds. In this talk, we will introduce the basic concepts of magnetism and outline the efforts that have been made to investigate how the magnetic properties of intermetallic compounds are influenced by variations in composition and pressure. Furthermore, novel synthetic methods for these intermetallic compounds will be introduced to show how these parameters are utilized as tools employed during the synthesis rather than being applied afterwards.
