Abstract: The crystal structure of the new iron(III) arsenate, viz. tricaesium diiron(III) tris(arsenate), Cs3Fe2(AsO4)3, is built up from corner-sharing AsO4 tetrahedra and FeO5 trigonal bipyramids forming a three-dimensional open framework, which contains two channels running along the c axis where the Cs+ cations are located. This compound is a rare example of an oxide possessing Fe exclusively in trigonal-bipyramidal coordination.
