A new rare earth metal Zintl compound, Eu14MnSb11, has been prepared in high yield from reacting stoichiometric amounts of the elements in a sealed tantalum tube, sealed in a quartz ampoule, at 1250 °C for 24 h. Eu14MnSb11 is isostructural with the Zintl compounds A14MPn11 (A = Ca, Sr, Ba; M = Al, Ga, Mn; Pn = As, Sb, Bi). Single crystal X-ray diffraction shows that this compound crystallizes in the tetragonal space group I41/acd, a = 17.300(3) A ̊, c = 22.746(4) A ̊, T = 130 K, Z = 8.
