Understanding the complex relationship between synthesis conditions, in particular temperature and composition, led to single crystals of the cryolite type phases Ag3MoO3F3 and Ag3VO 2F4. These crystals form in a reversible thermodynamic process from dissolved species when the solution is heated. Single crystal structural data reveal the Mo6+ cation distorted toward facially coordinated oxides for Ag3MoO3F3, and the V5+ cation toward the edge of the cis-oxide positions for Ag 3VO2F4. Local ordering of oxide and fluoride ligands is observed for both structures.
