We report specific heat under different magnetic fields for recently discovered quasi-one-dimensional Nb2PdS5 superconductor. The studied compound is superconducting below 6 K. Nb2PdS5 is quite robust against magnetic field with dH (c)/dT of -42 kOe/K. The estimated upper critical field [ H (c2)(0)] is 190 kOe, clearly surpassing the Pauli-paramagnetic limit of 1.84 T (c). Low-temperature heat capacity in superconducting state of Nb2PdS5 under different magnetic fields showed s-wave superconductivity with two different gaps. Two quasilinear slopes in Somerfield coefficient (gamma) as a function of applied magnetic field and two-band behavior of the electronic heat capacity demonstrate that Nb2PdS5 is a multiband superconductor in weak coupling limit with Delta C/ gamma T (c) = 0.9.
