The resistivity ρ, magnetic susceptibility χ, and specific heat C were measured for a single crystal of the valence-fluctuating hexagonal system CeRhSn. Strong anisotropy in both the resistivity (ρa> ρc) and magnetic susceptibility (χc> χa) was found. A hump appears in ρc(T) below 7 K, where both C/T and χ exhibit strong upturns. Power-law behaviors χc∝ T-1.1and χa∝ T-0.35were found below 4 and 16 K, respectively, down to 0.4 K. These results suggest the presence of unquenched moments in the quasi-Kagome lattice. © 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
