The stoichiometry and cell parameters of the compounds reported previously as 2R2O3 · 9WO3 were studied with single crystals and sintered samples. They seem to have the title composition and crystallize in an orthorhombic symmetry, Pbcn with Z = 2. The cell parameters are a = 3.877 A ̊, b = 35.971 A ̊ and c = 21.846 A ̊ for the Nd compound. Cell volumes of these compounds vary linearly with the cube of ionic radius.
