Magnetic susceptibility and neutron powder diffraction experiments have been performed on the noncentrosymmetric ternary compound Pr5Ru3Al2. The previously reported ferromagnetic transition at 24 K was not detected in our improved-quality samples. Instead, magnetic ordering was observed in the DC magnetic susceptibility at Tc ≃ 3:8 K. The neutron powder diffraction experiment further indicates that an incommensurate magnetic structure is established below Tc with the magnetic modulation vector q ≃ (0:066; 0:066; 0:066) (r.l.u.). A candidate for the magnetic structure is proposed using representation analysis.
