We report that the maximum magnetic entropy change ΔSm of Tm39Ho16Co20Al25 metallic glass can reach 18.3 Jkg−1K−1 under 5 T, which is larger than that of any previously reported metallic glasses and comparable with that of the giant magnetocaloric effect material Gd5Si2Ge2 compound. Even under low magnetic ﬁeldof2 T, the ΔSm of the glass can reach 10.3 Jkg−1K−1 which is even larger that of most of other metallic glasses under 5 T. The excellent magnetocaloric effect and refrigerant efﬁciency together with unique mechanical and physical properties of the metallic glasses indicate they are promising candidate for magnetic refrigerants
