The magnetic properties of a novel organic templated layered material FeOHPO4(NCH5) have been studied via AC magnetic susceptibility, DC magnetization, and neutron diffraction measurements. Temperature dependencies of both the in-phase and out-of-phase components of the AC magnetic susceptibility display a sharp peak at 30K, signifying the antiferromagnetic ordering of the Fe spins. Weak but definitive magnetic hysteresis was seen at temperatures below 30K, suggesting the existence of a weak ferromagnetic component. Neutron magnetic diffraction measurements reveal a canted antiferromagnetic structure, that gives rise to a weak net ferromagnetic moment, with TN≈30K and a saturated moment 〈μZ〉 = 3.35(5)μB for the Fe ions.
