We report superconductivity at T-C similar to 3.8 K in the new ternary phase Ta5GeB2. Bulk superconductivity is confirmed by magnetization, electrical resistivity and heat capacity measurements, the results showing conventional bulk superconductivity. Ta5GeB2 is a further example of a stoichiometric T-2 phase with Cr5B3 prototype structure. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
