We studied single crystals of BaV13O18, in which V ions with an average valence of +2.62 (3d2.38) form a quasi-fcc lattice. We found that the ground state of the stoichiometric crystal is insulating, whereas that of the off-stoichiometric crystal is metallic with a large effective mass. This metallic state can be explained by the Kondo coupling between the magnetic moment existing at the lone V ion and itinerant carriers in the V tetramers.
