Polycrystalline samples of MgB2 superconductor (Mn-doped as well as pristine) were investigated by measurements of the electrical resistivity, magneto-resistance in the temperature range of 4–300 K. All the samples show metallic behaviour. It is observed that the upper critical field slightly decreases with Mn concentration. Specific heat measurements were performed with field as well as without field. For comparison, we also prepared one Fe-doped and specific heat measurements were also carried out on this sample. It is observed that the jump in specific heat decreases with increase in Mn content.
