[en] This paper reports the hydrothermal synthesis and crystal structure refinement of diiron(II) phosphate hydroxide, Fe-2(II)(PO4)(OH), obtained at 1063 K and 2.5 GPa. This phosphate is the synthetic analogue of the mineral wolfeite, and has a crystal structure topologically identical to those of minerals of the triplite-triploidite group. The complex framework contains edge-and corner-sharing FeO4(OH) and FeO4(OH)(2) polyhedra, linked via corner-sharing to the PO4 tetrahedra (average P-O distances are between 1.537 and 1.544 angstrom). Four five-coordinated Fe sites are at the centers of distorted trigonal bipyramids (average Fe-O distances are between 2.070 and 2.105 angstrom), whereas the coordination environments of the remaining Fe sites are distorted octahedra (average Fe-O distances are between 2.146 and 2.180 angstrom). The Fe-O distances are similar to those observed in natural Mg-rich wolfeite, except for two Fe-O bond distances, which are significantly longer in synthetic Fe-2(2+) (PO4)(OH).
