A paramagnetic species of spin 1/2, with the four 〈111〉 axes of the cubic lattice as the symmetry axes, has been observed by electron paramagnetic resonance in undoped, as-grown RuS2 single crystals. The g values at 10.8 K are g∥ =2.022±0.001 and g ⊥ =2.088±0.001. The most probable origin of this paramagnetic species is an S- ion adjacent to an S vacancy.
