A second system of ternary superconductors has been discovered. Their formula is XRh4B4 with X being almost any trivalent transition element. In addition the superconductor ErRh4B4 first becomes superconducting, then loses it and becomes ferromagnetic at a lower temperature. This phenomenon is a radically new feature for ordered compounds. The properties of these and some closely related superconductors and magnets have been investigated.
