Rare-earth (RE)-based frustrated magnets are fertile playgrounds for discovering exotic quantum phenomena and exploring adiabatic demagnetization refrigeration applications. Here, we report the synthesis, structure, and magnetic properties of a family of rare-earth cyanurates RE5(C3N3O3)(OH)12 (RE = Gd–Lu) with an acentric space group P6̅2m. Magnetic susceptibility χ(T) and isothermal magnetization M(H) measurements manifest that RE5(C3N3O3)(OH)12 (RE = Gd, Dy–Yb) compounds exhibit no magnetic ordering down to 2 K, while Tb5(C3N3O3)(OH)12 shows long-range magnetic ordering around 3.6 K. Among them, magnetically frustrated spin-7/2 Gd5(C3N3O3)(OH)12 shows long-range magnetic ordering around 1.25 K and a large magnetocaloric effect with a maximum magnetic entropy change ΔSm of up to 58.1 J kg–1 K–1 at ΔH = 7 T at liquid-helium temperature regimes.
