The NMR of 31P in the ferromagnet U3P4 has been investigated. The nuclear relaxation rate 1/T1 shows critical-like divergence with 1/T1 ∝ [(T - TC) / TC]-0.68. The T-linear increase of T1 at higher temperatures implies that U3P4 is a localized moment system and that the correlation time of the U moments is dominated by the scattering due to conduction electrons.
