The magnetization of V5S8 and V5Se8 was measured in pulsed high magnetic fields up to 39 T. The anomalies were observed in the magnetization curves for both V5S8 and V5Se8. For V5S8, the anomaly at lower field is thought to correspond to spin flopping. The magnetization curves exhibited saturation for both compounds and the values of the ordered moments for V5S8 and V5Se8 were estimated to be 1.5 and 1.2 μB/VI from the saturation moments, respectively. Our results support the magnetic structure of V5S8 proposed by neutron diffraction measurements.
