Recently the observation of a half-integer quantized thermal Hall effect in the Kitaev material α-RuCl3, possibly indicating chiral Majorana edge modes, attracted considerable attention [1]. It arises in a finite field range exceeding the critical field for long-range antiferromagnetic order. We utilize a high-resolution alternating field method for the precise determination of the truly adiabatic magnetocaloric effect or magnetic Grüneisen parameter down to ∼ 1 K and in magnetic fields up to 15 T. Together with accompanying heat capacity measurements, it allows us to determine the entropy evolution when tuning the system into and out of the presumed topological Kitaev quantum spin liquid regime as a function of the applied field. We present a comprehensive analysis of the thermodynamic data and comparison to [2].
