Bottom Line: Two of the PO(4) tetra-hedra are statisticaly disordered over a mirror plane.The six different Na(+) cations (five with site symmetry m and one with 0.5 occupancy) are situated in six distinct cavities delimited by the framework.The structure was refined from data of a racemic twin.

ABSTRACT
Investigations of the quasi-ternary system Na(3)PO(4)-Mg(3)(PO(4))(2)-NdPO(4) allowed us to obtain the new phosphate hepta-sodium trideca-magnesium neodymium dodeca-kis-phosphate, Na(7)Mg(13)Nd(PO(4))(12), by applying a flux method. The crystal structure is isotypic with that of the previously reported Na(7)Mg(13)Ln(PO(4))(12) (Ln = Eu, La) compounds. It consists of a complex three-dimensional framework built up from an NdO(8) polyhedron (m symmetry), an MO(6) octa-hedron statistically occupied by M = Mg and Na, and eight MgO(x) (x = 5, 6) polyhedra (four with site symmetry m), linked either directely by sharing corners, edges and faces, or by one of the eight unique PO(4) tetra-hedra through common corners. Two of the PO(4) tetra-hedra are statisticaly disordered over a mirror plane. The whole structure can be described as resutling from an assembly of two types of structural units, viz [Mg(4)MP(4)O(22)](∞) (2) layers extending parallel to (100) and stacked along [100], and [Mg(4)NdP(4)O(36)](∞) (1) undulating chains running along the [010] direction. The six different Na(+) cations (five with site symmetry m and one with 0.5 occupancy) are situated in six distinct cavities delimited by the framework. The structure was refined from data of a racemic twin.
