Borosulfates are a rapidly expanding class of silicate analog materials. They are composed of vertex shared (BO4)- and (SO4)-tetrahedra, whereas borosulfates with cross-linking of the anionic network into two or even three dimensions are still very rare. We found that reactions between oleum enriched with 65% SO3 and boric acid in evacuated torch-sealed glass ampoules can be a powerful strategy to synthesize borosulfates with layer-like anionic substructures of divalent metals. The two new representatives Mn[B2(SO4)4] and Zn[B2(SO4)4] reveal alternating vierer- and zwölfer-rings of exclusively corner-linked (SO4)- and (BO4)-tetrahedra within the anionic layers. Both borosulfates are the first representatives with cations residing in the planes of the anionic networks. View this paper.
