The discovery of superconductivity around 8K in a metal-rich boride of Li2Pd2B (Lithium, Palladium, Boron) compound with cubic structure, was reported. In order to minimize the loss of Li by evaporation, a two-step melting process was employed. Temperature dependence of magnetization was measured for the samples at 20-100 Oe by a superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer. It was found that the compound prepared by high density and was relatively stable in the air.
