Compounds Fe7Sb3(PO4)3O6Cl3 and Fe7Sb3(PO4)3O6Br3 are the first iron phosphates containing SbIII. They were synthesized by chemical vapor transport reactions, and their crystal structures were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The compounds are isostructural and crystallize in the orthorhombic space group Pnma. Tubular Fe7(PO4)3O6X3 units (X = Cl, Br) are linked by SbO4 groups to build up a framework. The tubular units consist of an outer part made up of [FeO5X] octahedra where the Fe atoms are arranged to resemble a nanotube. Inside the tubes there are phosphate groups, and at the very center there is a chain of face-sharing [FeO6] octahedra.
