Five new cerium (IV) fluoride and fluoride-arsenate framework structures have been synthesised hydrothermally using CeF as a fluoride source. Cs[CeF[F·HO]] (I) consists of layers, formed from linked Ce(F,O) polyhedra cross-linked by hydrogen bonding that defines large channels containing the caesium ions. [(NH)(HO)][Ce (AsO)(HO)F] (II), has an open framework structure with large channels filled with NH cations and HO molecules. Ce[AsO ]F (III) and Ce[AsO]F[HO] (IV) exhibit two types of bridging (Ce-O-Ce and Ce-F-Ce) bonds between Ce(O,F) polyhedra, and (NH)[CeF(AsO)] (V), is isostructural with the previously reported fluoride-phosphate (NH )[CeF(PO)] (R. B. Yu, D. Wang, T. Takei, N. Kumada, H. Koizumi and N. Kinomura, J. Solid State Chem., 2001, 157, 180).1
