Abstract: The tite compound, lithium pentasodium nonamolybdate, LiNa5Mo9O30, was synthesized by solid-state reaction. The three-dimensional [Mo9O30]6- framework is built up from MoO6 octahedra and MoO5 bipyramids, linked together by edges and corners. The framework delimits two types of intersecting tunnels running along  and  in which the Na+ and Li+ ions are located. The asymmetric unit contains one Mo, one Na and one Li site located on a twofold rotation axis. The crystal studied was a racemic twin with site a twin ratio of 0.51 (10):0.49 (10). Relationships between the structures of K2Mo3O10, K2Mo4O13, Cs2Mo7O22, Na6Mo10O33 and Na6Mo11O36 compounds are discussed.
