The crystal structures, magnetic susceptibilities, and electrical resistivities of the quaternary intermetallic compounds LaRh2B2C and LaIr2B2C are reported. Although isostructural with the recently reported superconductors LNi2B2C and LPt2B2C (L=La and Y), they are not superconducting at temperatures above 1.4 K. The magnetic-susceptibility measurements reveal densities of states at the Fermi level intermediate to the Ni- and Pt-based compounds.
