X-ray diffraction measurements on Ce2Fe17 have been performed in the temperature range from 8 to 300 K at the magnetic fields up to 5 T. The thermal expansion curves along the principal axes for antiferromagnet and ferromagnet Ce2Fe17 are presented. A distinct lattice expansion was observed simultaneously with the metamagnetic transition. This suggests that the hybridization between Fe 3d- and Ce 4f-electrons in Ce 2Fe17 is suppressed by the application of magnetic field.
