Single crystals and pure powder samples of the new compound YBaCo4O7 have been obtained by solid-state reactions, using different temperature programs. From X-ray powder diffraction the structure was determined as hexagonal, space group P6(3)mc. having the cell parameters a = 6.2982(4) and c = 10.2467(9) Angstrom. This phase is isostructural with that previously reported for LuBaZn3.09Al0.91O7. Refinements of powder neutron diffraction data collected at two different temperatures and X-ray single crystal data at room temperature, agree well. Changes with temperature in the relative positions of Co and its surrounding oxygen atoms are the only geometrical manifestation of a probable spin-glass transition at about 65 K from the high temperature paramagnetic state.
