We report recent progresses in single crystal preparation as well as physical properties of actinide intermetallic compounds. Flux techniques have successfully been applied for obtain- ing new compounds, including the heavy fermion superconductor NpPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$ and related compounds. For plutonium compounds, where the radiation damage due to the $$alpha$$-decay of $$^{239}$$Pu is significant, a synthesis technique using the less-radioactive $$^{242}$$Pu isotope has been developed.
