Substitution of oxygen by fluorine in the borate group offers a materials platform from which intriguing structure and functionality may arise. Herein, we report a new fluorooxoborate, BaB O F , synthesized by introducing the F atoms into the BaO-B2O3 system. BaB2O3F2 exhibits a unique oxyfluoride layer 2/∞ [B2O3F]- and a deep-ultraviolet cutoff edge below 180 nm. The effect of the introduction of F atoms on the structure and optical property of the borate group has been investigated; this should be useful to further expand borate chemistry and materials.
