Polarized neutron diffraction has been used to study the magnetization distribution in two isostructural inter-metallic compounds NiMnSb and PdMnSb. Band structure calculations have predicted that whereas the former should be a half metallic ferromagnet the latter should not. Measurements made at 5K on different crystals show that disorder can occur between the A (Mn) and B (Sb) sites in both alloys and in the case of NiMnSb, by partial occupation of the void D sites by Ni. In all the crystals most of the moment was found on the Mn atoms in the A sites; in NiMnSb it is due to spin only but in PdMnSb there is evidence for a significant orbital contribution (g = 2.22). The magnitudes of the moments associated with each atom are in fair agreement with the theoretical values; however, the distribution of magnetization around the Mn atoms is found to have nearly spherical symmetry (40%eg) rather than the 50%e g character expected from the band structure.
