Abstract: The title compound, LiMn(H2O)2[BP2O8]·H2O, is built up of an open framework of helical borophosphate ribbons interconnected by MnO4(H2O)2 octahedra, forming one-dimensional channels along  occupied by Li+ cations and disordered H2O molecules (site occupancy 0.5). The Li cations reside in two partially occupied sites [occupancies = 0.42 (3) and 0.289 (13)] near the helices.
