The magnetization study was performed on single crystals of uranium intermetallic compounds R2T13.6Si3.4 (R=U, Lu; T=Fe, Co). A very different behavior of the U sublattice was observed for T=Fe and Co. In U2Fe13.6Si3.4, the U sublattice is magnetic and contributes a lot to the exchange and anisotropy energies whereas in U2Co13.6Si3.4 it is presumably non-magnetic. Influence of U in the latter case consists in reduction of the Co magnetic moments and exchange interaction between them, which causes a much lower molecular magnetic moment and Curie temperature in U2Co 13.6Si3.4 compared to Lu2Co 13.6Si3.4.
