The apatite-type compound, pentastrontium tris[arsenate(V)] chloride, Sr5(AsO4)3Cl, has been synthesized by ion exchange at high temperature from a synthetic sample of mimetite [Pb5(AsO4)3Cl] with SrCO3 as a by-product. The results of the Rietveld refinement, based on high resolution synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction data, show that the title compound crystallizes in the same structure as other halogenoapatites with general formula A5(YO4)3X (A = divalent cation, Y = pentavalent cation, and X = F, Cl or Br) in the space group P63/m. The structure consists of isolated tetrahedral AsO4 3- anions (the As atom and two O atoms have m symmetry), separated by two crystallographically independent Sr2+ cations that are located on mirror planes and threefold rotation axes, respectively. One Sr atom is coordinated by nine O atoms and the other by six. The chloride anions (site symmetry 3) are at the 2a sites and are located in the channels of the structure.
