Single crystals of the title compound, Na3Ca2BiO6, were grown from a high-temperature reactive flux solution of Na2CO3. Na3Ca2BiO6 crystallizes as an ordered rock-salt structure (space group Fddd), in which the octahedral holes in the oxide array are filled by an ordered 3:2:1 arrangement of Na+, Ca2+ and Bi5+ cations. All atoms except for one O atom lie on special positions; site symmetries are as follows: Bi 222, Ca 2, Na 222 and 2, O 2.
