We present the magnetic properties and magnetocaloric effect of ternary intermetallic compound Er2PtSi3 with the orthorhombic Ba2LiSi3-type structure. Dc magnetization, ac susceptibilit, magnetic relaxation, electrical resistivity and specific heat measurements indicate that this system undergoes two magnetic phase transitions from a paramagnetic state sequentially to an antifwerromagnetic state at TN=5.4 K and then to a random spin freezing state at Tf=2.4 K. In addition, the large magnetocaloric effect is also observed for the Er2PtSi3 alloy. Near its Néel temperature TN, the maximum magnetic entropy change, relative cooling power and maximum adiabatic temperature change are estimated to be 16.1 Jkg-1K-1, 290 Jkg-1 and 7.7 K, respectively, for a field change of 5 T. These results suggest that Er2PtSi3 should be classified as a re-entrant spin-glass system and can be considered as a potential lowerature magnetic refrigeration material.
