Solvothermal reactions in ethylenediamine have resulted in two quaternary mercury containing selenoantimonates: RbHgSbSe3 (I) and CsHgSbSe3 (II). Compound I crystallizes in monoclinic system, space group P2l/c (no. 14) with a = 7.758(2)Å, b = 11.234(2)Å, c = 8.849(2) Å, β = 106.60(3)°, V = 739.1(3)Å3, Z = 4. Compound II crystallizes in orthorhombic system, space group Cmcm (no. 63) with a = 4.444(1)Å, b = 15.514(6)Å, c = 11.261(7) Å, V = 776.4(6) Å3, Z = 4. Both compounds are layered materials and their crystal structures are closely related. Both contain layers of 2[HgSbSe3
-] separated by alkali-metal cations A+ (Rb, Cs). Diffuse reflectance experiments show that both compounds are semiconductors with estimated band gaps of 1.7 eV for I and 1.6 eV for II, respectively.
