We measured the ionic conductivity for two single crystals of RbTiOPO4 grown in self-fluxes with different chemical composition. Ionic conductivity depended on the composition of the self-flux solution in which the crystal was grown. One of the samples showed an anisotropic behavior along the three crystallographic axes while the other showed a nearly isotropic behavior of the ac conductivity.
