The crystal structure of NH4FeCl3 and ND4FeCl3 is related to hexagonal perovskite: chains of face-sharing FeCl6 octahedra lie parallel to the c-axis, giving quasi-one-dimensional magnetic properties. At high temperatures the nonspherical ion NH4+ or ND4+ is fully disordered, and the structure may be modelled in space group P6(3) with a primitive cell of dimensions a x a x c, Powder neutron diffraction and single crystal X-ray measurements show that on cooling the ammonium group becomes more ordered and the rest of the crystal structure distorts, with phase transitions at 181 and 19.5 K. At 3.5 K the magnetic moments freeze to give long-range magnetic order with ferromagnetic correlation within the chains and an antiferromagnetic array in the frustrated nb plane.
