The magnetic entropy change, ΔSM, was measured for Co(S1-xSex)2 with 0≤x≤0.103, which is a system showing the itinerant electron metamagnetism (IEM). It was found that the peak value of -ΔSM shows a maximum at around x=0.08. The origin of this behavior is discussed in terms of the Clausius-Clapeyron relation.
