We study the unextendible maximally entangled bases (UMEB) in d d and connect the problem to the partial Hadamard matrices. We show that for a given special UMEB in d d, there is a partial Hadamard matrix which can not be extended to a complete Hadamard matrix in d. As a corollary, any (d 1) × d partial Hadamard matrix can be extended to a complete Hadamard matrix, which answers a conjecture about d = 5. We obtain that for any d there is a UMEB except for d = p or 2p, where p 3 mod4 and p is a prime. The existence of different kinds of constructions of UMEBs in nd nd for any n and d = 3 × 5 × 7 is also discussed.
