Complex metal arsenates of the stoichiometry M1-xM‘6(OH)3(AsO4H2x/3)3(HAsO4), M = M‘ = Co, Ni, have been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. The two compounds display a very similar structural topology to that of the mineral dumortierite, an uncommon complex oxyborosilicate of aluminum. The hybrid structures consist of well separated, vacancy interrupted chains of face sharing MO6 octahedra, with short M···M distances near 2.5 Å, embedded in a metalloarsenate 3D framework having the topology of the aluminosilicate cancrinite. The framework also contains a quadruply bridging hydroxide ion. Magnetic susceptibility measurements reveal a strong antiferromagnetic interaction and magnetic transition to low temperature spin canted phases below 51 K (Co) and 42 K (Ni). The material may be considered as a zeotype framework structure templated by an interrupted one-dimensional metal oxide.
