A hydrothermal reaction of a mixture of iron oxalate, arsenic acid, 1,2-diaminopropane and water at 150 degrees C gave rise to a new three-dimensional iron oxalatoarsenate, [NH3(CH2)CH(NH3)CH3](3)[Fe-6(AsO4)(2)(HAsO4)(6)(C2O4)3], I. Crystal data: hexagonal, space group = P-3cl, a = 13.9899(12), c = 14.936(3) angstrom, V,= 2531.6(5) angstrom(3). The structure consists of layers of vertex-sharing FeO6 octahedral and AsO4 tetrahedral units that form 12-membered apertures. The layers are connected together by the oxalate units, forming a uniform one-dimensional channel that is occupied by protonated amine molecules. Variable temperature powder XRD studies indicates that I loses crystallinity at similar to 300 degrees C forming an amorphous phase that gives way to crystalline FeAsO4 at similar to 650 degrees C. Magnetic studies reveal that I is antiferromagnetic with T-N = 31 K.
