In this paper, we present a combination of first-principles and experimental investigations on the structural, magnetic and electronic properties of monoclinic Li 3 V 2 (PO 4 ) 3 . The change of dielectric constant indicates that the structural phase transition appear around the temperature 120 • C. The first-principles calculation and magnetic measurement display that Li 3 V 2 (PO 4 ) 3 is a compound with weak ferromagnetism, with Curie constant of C = 0.004 and Curie temperature of 140 K. The
