Single crystals of CaSmCuO3Cl have been grown by high temperature reactions with Sm2O3, CuO, and excess CaCl2. Its structure was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. CaSmCuO3Cl crystallizes with a tetragonal T* structure (space group P4/nmm No. 129) with a = 3.894(3) and c = 13.416(8)Å. The structure can be described as an intergrowth of T and T′ forms of the rare-earth copper oxides. The observed interatomic distances are comparable to those observed for Ca2CuO4Cl2 and Ca3Cu2O4Cl2.
