A novel hexagonal tungsten oxide (HTO)-like layered framework containing a main-group cation, In3+, and a lone-pair cation, Te4+, is reported. Na1.4InTe3.6O9.4 exhibits a layered structure consisting of InO6, TeO3, and TeO4 polyhedra. The synthesis, crystal structure determination, characterization, and reactivity of the material will be presented.
