Abstract This paper reports on the preparation of Li 5 ReO 6 , Li 4 NpO 5 and Li 5 NpO 6 by solid-state reactions, the results of X-ray and neutron powder diffraction measurements on all three compounds, and the determination of the structures of Li 5 ReO 6 and Li 4 NpO 5 from the neutron data. The neutron powder diffraction refinement for Li 5 ReO 6 confirms a recent single-crystal X-ray diffraction study: monoclinic, space group C 2/ m . This structure is retained by Li 5 ReO 6 between 298 K and 10 K. The neutron powder diffraction refinement for Li 4 NpO 5 confirms earlier X-ray powder diffraction results: tetragonal, space group I 4/ m , a=6.698 A , c=4.415 ...
