Single crystals of TbRhln5 were synthesized using the flux growth method. TbRhln5 adopts the HoCoGa5 structure type and crystallizes in the space group P4/mmm, Z = 1. Lattice parameters are a = 4.6000(6) Å, c = 7.4370(11) Å, and V = 157.29(6) Å3. Transport measurements show that TbRhln5 is metallic (dρ/dT > 0). A sharp antiferromagnetic transition is observed at TN = 48 K in the susceptibility data for TbRhln5, which is highly anisotropic when the field is oriented along the c axis and a-b plane of the crystal and has an average effective moment of 9.72 μB/ Tb3+. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
