Low-field magnetic susceptibility and high-field magnetization results are reported for polycrystalline samples of NbPd3, VPd3, and iron doped VPd3. Recent self-consistent, spin-polarized band calculations have predicted that the pure compounds are itinerant ferromagnets. Down to 1.6 K there is no evidence for either magnetic ordering or exchange enhancement in VPd3 and NbPd3. The Fe-doped alloys exhibit transitions at low temperatures to a magnetic cluster-glass state.
