The structure of M-Li2Mo4O13 has been determined. M-Li2Mo4O13 crystallizes in the monoclinic and noncentrosymmetric space group P21 (No. 4) with cell parameters a = 8.2178(5) Å, b = 21.2814(13) Å, c = 8.5950(5) Å, β = 96.0880(10)°, Z = 2, and final residuals of RI = 0.0225 and wR2 = 0.0536. M-Li2Mo4O13 is one of three polymorphs and all three phases are Li-Mo cosubstituted V6O 13 homeotypes built on an identical oxygen-deficient cubic close-packed oxygen framework.
