Other compounds with this structure

  • AgxNa1–xMn3(PO4)3, LixNa1–xCdIn2(PO4)3, LixNa1–xMnFe2(PO4)3, Na2(Fe,Co)Fe(VO4)3, Na2Co2Cr(PO4)3, Na2Fe2V(PO4)3, Na2Zn2Fe(VO4)3, Na3Bi2(AsO4)3, Na4Co(MnO4)3, and NaxMnyAl5–x–y(PO4)3

  • This is a rather idealized version of alluaudite. (Moore, 1971) gives the composition of the sodium site (Na) as Na0.625Mn0.175Ca0.125, with vacancies on the remaining sites; the manganese (Mn) site is Mn0.950Mg0.025Li0.025; and the iron (Fe) site as Fe0.988Mg0.012. (Hatert, 2005) puts some sodium atoms on another ($4e$) site, with $y ≈ 0$; the exact placement and concentration depends upon the manganese content. We may expect similar variations in other compounds having this structure.
