A new Mo(IV) phosphate, NaMo2P3O12, has been discovered and characterized by means of single crystal X-ray diffraction. It crystallizes in the trigonal space groupR3-c witha = 8.6160(7), c = 22.075(3)Å,Z = 6, R = 0.015, Rw = 0.018, GOF = 1.613 for 406 unique reflections withI > 2.5 σ(I). The framework of NaMo2P3O12 is built of MoO6 octahedra, NaO6 trigonal antiprisms, and PO4 tetrahedra. Its structure is isostructural with NaZr2P3O12 and closely related to MoP3SiO11.
