A search for perovskite-type new borides in the Sc-TM-B (TM = Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni) system has been carried out by the arc-melting synthetic method. As a result, the chemical formula of the compound ScNi3B 0.5 was obtained. This compound has the cubic perovskite-type structure (space group: Pm3m) with the lattice parameter a = 0.37760(7)nm. ScNi3B0.5 exhibits metallic behavior down to 4.2K. The magnetic susceptibility of ScNi3B0.5 shows Pauli paramagnetism. No superconductivity appears down to the lowest temperature by the electric and magnetic measurements. The micro-Vickers hardness and oxidation resistivity in air are also reported for ScNi3B 0.5.
