Abstract

A new europium nickel phosphide compound EuNi5P3 was synthesized in a tin flux. The structure was refined from single crystal X-ray data in the space group Cmcm to an R value of 2.06%. The lattice parameters are a = 3.5986(3), b = 11.7374(8), and c = 11.5230(10)Å and the compound is isotypic with LaCo5P3 and LaNi5P3. The room temperature magnetic moment of 8.1 Bohr magnetons indicates that the europium ions are in the +2 oxidation state.
