Summary Ab initio crystal structure determination of the α form of MnHP 2 O 7 and Rietveld refinement of the MnLiP 2 O 7 structure were performed using powder X-ray diffraction data. The final structures have been obtained using soft restraints on interatomic bond lengths and bond angles for the diphosphate group. The two compounds were found to be to a great extent isostructural. They crystallize in the monoclinic space group P 2 1 , Z = 2, a = 6.7547(6), b = 8.3160(7), c = 4.8769(5) Å, β = 113.1791(18)°, R p = 0.0283, R wp = 0.0390, R Bragg = 0.0930, R F = 0.0869 for α -MnHP 2 2 O 7 , and a = 7.0018(5), b = 8.1616(6), c = 4.7267(4)Å, β = 109.404(3)°, R p = 0.0307, R wp = 0.0423, R Bragg = 0.0960, R F = 0.0861 for MnLiP 2 O 7 . In both compounds, diphosphate groups adopt nearly eclipsed configuration. Their structures present three-dimensional networks, which have tunnels including the lithium cations or hydrogen atoms. The behaviour of the crystalline forms of MnHP 2 O 7 in H/Li exchange reactions is discussed, vs . their structural aspects.
