Single crystals of AgCdVO4 have been prepared in closed silver tubes using V2O5 as a flux. The light-orange crystals show orthorhombic symmetry, space group D162h-Pnma, a = 9.786(2), b = 6.994(1), c = 5.439(1) Å, Z = 4. The hitherto unknown AgCdVO4 is related to the Olivine structure but isotypic to Ag2CrO4 and NaCd4(VO4)3 respectively. The differences in crystal chemistry between the Olivine type, NaCd4(VO4)3 and AgCdVO4 are discussed.
