Trirubidium trititanium undecatelluride, Rb3Ti3Te11, has been synthesized from the reaction of titanium, tellurium, and Rb2Te3 at 773 K. Its structure has been determined from single-crystal X-ray data. It is composed of one-dimensional [Ti3Te113-] chains built by face-sharing pentagonal TiTe7 bipyramids and distorted TiTe6 octahedra. These chains adopt hexagonal closest packing along the [101] direction. Rb atoms are located among these chains. The wide range of Te-Te interactions makes the assignment of formal oxidation states impossible. The compound is isostructural with Cs3Ti3Te11.
