By analysis of the excitation spectrum of NdB6, we extract the intersite magnetic interactions. The Néel temperature TN = 7.9 K is obtained by using the value of the intersite interaction deduced from the fit, which compares favourably with the experimental value TN ≃ 8 K. We take into consideration a ferroquadrupolar interaction g′3 in the analysis, and obtain g′3 = 107 mK, which agrees well with the experimental value of about 100 mK. The ferroquadrupolar interaction results in a gap in the excitation spectrum observed in the experiment.
