AbstractTo help design apatites with specific structural and crystal-chemical characteristics, an experimental and theoretical investigation was launched to examine the crystal structures of Ca10(AsO4)6F2 and Ca10(VO4)6F2. Electron, neutron and X-ray powder diffraction as well as ab initio calculations were used to show that these compounds are isostructural triclinic P1 apatites and that the reduction of symmetry from P63/m is caused by BO4 tetrahedral tilting to obtain satisfactory bond-valence sums.
