performed NMR measurements in 5f-115 compounds with various ground states [UFeGa$$_{5}$$ (Paramagnet), UPtGa$$_{5}$$, NpCoGa$$_{5}$$, NpFeGa$$_{5}$$ (Antiferromagnet) and PuRhGa$$_{5}$$ (Superconductor)], and evaluated the T-dependence of the local (actinide site) magnetic fluctuation energies (//c and c) in the paramagnetic states. An anisotropy in the magnetic fluctuations is observed in all compounds due to the strong LS coupling, in contrast to 3d-high Tc cuprates which have isotropic magnetic fluctuations at Cu sites. It is remarkable that the XY-type magnetic anisotropy is strong in PuRhGa$$_{5}$$ comparing with the non-superconducting 5f-115 compounds. The fluctuation energy in PuRhGa$$_{5}$$ is of the order of 10meV which is between of heavy fermion superconductors (1meV for $$T$$$$_{rm c}$$1K) and high $$T$$$$_{rm c}$$ cuprates (102meV for $$T$$$$_{rm c}$$100K). The relation between the magnetic fluctuation properties and the ground states will be discussed.
