Heavy-fermion compounds exhibit many unexpected low-temperature properties like unconventional superconductivity, non-Fermi liquid behavior or negative magnetoresistance. In this work, we report a comprehensive study of the non-centrosymmetric heavy-fermion compound CeAl2 with TN= 3.8K. The metallurgical characterization by Laue x-ray scattering and powder x-ray diffraction shows the excellent crystalline quality, which is confirmed by very high RRR values. Subsequently, magnetization, specific heat, torque magnetometry, resistivity, and Hall-effect measurements down to 200mK and up to 14T were carried out. The low-temperature measurements in the antiferromagnetic regime show complex magnetic behavior. Presumably, the Hall-effect cannot be explained by a superposition of anomalous and normal Hall-effect, which suggests a topological contribution.
