Abstract

The crystal structure of Cs3Mo5P7O24 has been determined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Cs3Mo5P7O24 crystallizes in the trigonal space group P31c (159) with a = 11.940(4) Å, c = 9.292(2) Å, V = 1147.1(7) Å3, Z = 2, R = 0.0218 (Rw = 0.0258) for 2850 reflections with I > 3 σ(I). The structure consists of large tunnels where the cesium atoms are located. The framework is built up from unusual cubane-like Mo4O3P cluster units with six MoMo bonds, isolated MoO6 octahedra, and pyrophosphate groups.
