Y.-H. Roh and S.-T. Hong

Abstract: The title compound, pentabarium tris(vanadate) chloride, crystallizes in the well known apatite structure type, with space group P63/m and Z = 2. The crystal structure contains isolated (VO4)3- tetrahedra that are bridged by Ba2+ ions. The intermediate Cl- anions, situated on positions with \\overline{3} symmetry, are octahedrally surrounded by Ba2+ cations.
