An H3O+-templated layered neodymium sulfate has been hydro­thermally synthesized and characterized by thermogravimetric and single-crystal structural analysis. In the structure, Nd3+ cations combine with sulfate groups to form anhydrous anionic [Nd(SO4)2] layers with tricapped trigonal–prismatic neodymium. To achieve charge balance, H3O+ cations are inserted between the layers where they hydrogen bond to terminal oxide O atoms of the sulfate anions.

The crystal structures of two caesium vanadium hydrogenphosphates present three-dimensional frameworks of VO6 octa­hedra and PO4 tetra­hedra with tunnels in which Cs+ cations are located.

The title compound crystallizes in a new structure type with the TaV atom surrounded by seven fluoride anions, forming a monocapped trigonal prism, and with the potassium ions coordinated by eight fluoride anions. One fluoride anion is enclosed in an octa­hedron of potassium cations. The potassium octa­hedra share faces to form infinite cationic chains of composition [FK3]2+. Isolated [TaF7]2− anions are distributed between the chains to complete the crystal packing.
