Using powder X-ray diffraction and Te K-edge EXAFS data, discrete tetrahedral TeO42− (Te–O 1.81–1.85 Å) groups have been refined in the structure of Cs2TeO4; 125Te MASNMR confirms the presence of tetrahedral units. The use of a combined data analysis technique allows the determination of light atom positions in the presence of heavy elements using X-ray methods alone.
