Single crystals of the bronze K3Nb6P4O26 were grown by chemical vapor transport and flux techniques with KCl. The directional electrical transport properties along the three crystallographic axes indicate anisotropic semiconducting behavior with activation energies of 0.11, 0.08 and 0.11 eV for Ea, Eb and Ec, respectively. Magnetic susceptibility data followed Curie behavior with μeff = 1.37μB.
