Single crystals of trichloridosulfonium(IV) hexachloridouranate(V) were obtained from the reaction of uranium(IV) chloride with an excess of disulfur dichloride and studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In comparison with the structure model reported previously [Sawodny et al. (1983). Z. Anorg. Allg. Chem. 499, 81–88.], the lattice parameters and fractional atomic coordinates were determined to a much higher precision, leading overall to an improved structure model. The ionic compound
