Single crystals of the mixed valence compound Pb3Ni 1.5Mn5.5O15 were successfully grown. Polarized Raman spectroscopy revealed that they belong to the point group D3d, in accordance with single-crystal x-ray diffraction data which were refined within the trigonal space group p3c(No.165), with lattice parameters a = 9.941(3)Å and c = 13.543(3)Å. Strongly anisotropic long range magnetic order is established below 65K. © 2011 IOP Publishing Ltd.
