The structures of N phi states with spin-parity J(p)=3/2(-) and J(p)=1/2(-) are dynamically studied in both the chiral SU(3) quark model and the extended chiral SU(3) quark model by solving a resonating group method (RGM) equation. The model parameters are taken from our previous work, which gave a satisfactory description of the energies of the baryon ground states, the binding energy of the deuteron, the nucleon-nucleon (NN) scattering phase shifts, and the hyperon-nucleon (YN) cross sections. The channel coupling of N phi and Lambda K-* is considered, and the effect of the tensor force which results in the mixing of S and D waves is also investigated. The results show that the N phi state has an attractive interaction, and in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model such an attraction plus the channel coupling effect can consequently make for an N phi quasi-bound state with several MeV binding energy.
