The magnetic and electrical properties of Co(3)TeO(6) single crystals with corundum-related structure reveal a magnetic-field-induced polarization below 21 K. A sharp peak in the specific heat at approximate to 18 K indicates a reconstructive-type first-order phase transition. From second-harmonic generation measurements, breaking of inversion symmetry is evident and the point-group symmetry was determined as m. The temperature and magnetic-field dependences of the magnetic and electrical polarizations are discussed in the light of the SHG results.
