We report three new mixed-anion two-dimensional (2D) compounds: SrFPbBiS3, SrFAg0.5Bi1.5S3, and Sr2F2Bi2/3S2. Their structures as well as the parent compound SrFBiS2 were refined using single-crystal X-ray diffraction data, with the sequence of SrFBiS2, SrFPbBiS3, and SrFAg0.5Bi1.5S3 defining the new homologous series SrFMnBiSn+2 (M = Pb, Ag0.5Bi0.5; n = 0, 1). Sr2F2Bi2/3S2 has a different structure, which is modulated with a q vector of 1/3b∗ and was refined in superspace group X2/m(0β0)00 as well as in the 1 × 3 × 1 superstructure with space group C2/m (with similar results). Sr2F2Bi2/3S2 features hexagonal layers of alternating [Sr2F2]2+ and [Bi2/3S2]2-, and the modulated structure arises from the unique ordering pattern of Sr2+ cations. SrFPbBiS3, SrFAg0.5Bi1.5S3, and Sr2F2Bi2/3S2 are semiconductors with band gaps of 1.31, 1.21, and 1.85 eV, respectively. The latter compound exhibits room temperature red photoluminescence at ∼700 nm.
