MII3(TeIVO3)2(OH)2 (M = Mg, Mn, Co, Ni) compounds crystallize isotypically in the hexagonal space group P63mc (No. 186) with unit-cell parameters of a ≈ 13 Å, c ≈ 5 Å. In the crystal structure, a framework with composition M3(TeO3)2(OH)1.50.5+ defines large hexagonal channels extending along  where the remaining OH− anions are located. Crystal-growth studies under mild hydrothermal conditions with subsequent structure analyses on basis of X-ray diffraction methods revealed that parts of other anions present in solution such as CO32−, SO42−, SeO42−, NO3−, Cl− or Br− could partly replace the OH− anions in the channels. The incorporation of such anions into the M3(TeO3)2(OH)2 structure was confirmed by energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) measurements and Raman spectroscopy of selected single-crystals.
