Abstract: The structure of the title compound is characterized by the presence of two different anions, (PO4)3- and (P2O7)4- with an eclipsed conformation. The crystal structure consists of edge-sharing [NiO6] octahedra forming an [Ni3O14] chain running parallel to . Adjacent chains are connected through edges and apices to PO4 and P2O7 groups in such a way as to build a three-dimensional host lattice. The resulting framework presents intersecting tunnels running along  and  in which the 11-coordinated potassium cation is located. The crystal structure of this new phosphate probably represents a new structural type.
