In the past decade, Mn rich Ni-Mn based alloys have attained considerable attention due to their abundant physics and potential application as multifunctional materials. In this paper, polycrystalline NiMnPdSn ( = 0, 2, 4, 6) Heusler alloys have been prepared, and the martensitic phase transformation (MPT) together with the shape memory effect and the magnetocaloric effect has been investigated. The experimental result indicates that the MPT evidently shifts to a lower temperature with increase of Pd substitution for Mn atoms, which can be attributed to the weakness of the hybridization between the Ni atom and excess Mn on the Sn site rather than the electron concentration. The physics properties study focused on the sample of NiMnPdSn shows a good two-way shape memory behavior, and the maximum value of strain / reaches about 0.13% during the MPT. The small of both entropy change and magnetostrain can be ascribed to the inconspicuous influence of magnetic field induced MPT.
