The new compound RbMnPO4 has been synthesized using a solid state route. Its structure has been determined at room temperature by Rietveld refinement of X-ray powder diffraction data. The space group is P21 with the cell parameters a = 8.9476(3), b = 5.4511(2), c = 9.1655(3) Å and β = 90.2912(8)°. The framework of RbMnPO4 has the same topology as that of zeolite ABW-type structures. The phosphorus atoms and half of the manganese atoms are located in tetrahedral site and half of the manganese atoms are penta-coordinated, the rubidium atoms are located in the channels.
