Recently thermoelectric generation is being applied to sensing devices for sensor network, which should be composed by low toxic and environmentally friendly materials. We focused on Al<SUB>2</SUB>(FeSi)<SUB>3</SUB> as a low toxic material, it has been found to be a semiconductor by first-principle calculations. Previous researches reveal the complex crystal structure of Al<SUB>2</SUB>(FeSi)<SUB>3</SUB> in Al-Fe-Si alloy, however, the thermoelectric properties have not been measured yet. In the present study, single phase Al<SUB>2</SUB>(FeSi)<SUB>3</SUB> bulk sample has been synthesized by arc melting, followed by spark plasma sintering and heat treatment. Then the electrical and thermal properties have been investigated.
