The magnetic, electrical transport and thermodynamic properties of the compounds UFe2Zn20 and URu2Zn20 were studied on single-crystalline specimens over wide ranges of temperature and magnetic field. The results indicate that the two ternaries are paramagnetic moderately enhanced heavy fermion systems. Their physical behavior is governed predominantly by the hybridization of uranium 5f orbitals with electronic states of ligands, which brings about considerable delocalization of the 5f states.
