Two titled compounds which have different structures have been synthesized by heating mixtures of hydrates of copper (II) nitrate and copper (II) chloride, or indium nitrate. Their crystal structures have been refined by the Rietveld method using neutron powder diffraction data. Cu6O8InCl is a stoichiometric compound and has a murdochite-like structure. The crystal structure of Cu6O8Cu2Cl is essentially the same as that of Cu6O8InCl except Cu sites corresponding to the In sites. The cu atoms are not located at the In site (2b) in the cube, but distributed among 6 equivalent sites (24e) around the center of the oxygen cube with an occupation factor of about 0.29.
