We report on the synthesis, crystal structure determination, and magnetic susceptibility measurements of Eu3Pd2Sn2, EuPd2Sn4, and EuPdSn2. For all three compounds a divalent state of Eu ions was obtained from the fitting of the magnetic susceptibilities. At low temperatures Eu3Pd2Sn2, EuPd2Sn4, and EuPdSn2 order magnetically at 23, 12, and 13 K, respectively.
