Abstract Two new bismuth(III) selenite/tellurite nitrates, [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}](NO{sub 3}) and [Bi(TeO{sub 3})](NO{sub 3}), have been synthesized by conventional facile hydrothermal method at middle temperature 200 °C and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, powder diffraction, UV–vis–NIR optical absorption spectrum, infrared spectrum and thermal analylsis. Both [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}](NO{sub 3}) and [Bi(TeO3)](NO3) crystallize in the monoclinic centronsymmetric space group P2{sub 1}/c with a=9.9403(4) Å, b=9.6857(4) Å, c=10.6864(5) Å, β=93.1150(10)° for [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}](NO{sub 3}) and a=8.1489(3) Å, b=9.0663(4) Å, c=7.4729(3) Å, β=114.899(2)° for Bi(TeO3)(NO3), respectively. The two compounds, whose structures are composed of three different asymmetric building units, exhibit two different types of structures. The structure of [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}](NO{sub 3}) features a three-dimensional (3D) bismuth(III) selenite cationic tunnel structure [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}] {sup 3}{sub ∞} with NO{sub 3}{sup −} anion group filling in the 1D tunnel along b axis. The structure of [Bi(TeO{sub 3})](NO{sub 3}) features 2D bismuth(III) tellurite [Bi(TeO{sub 3}){sub 2}]{sup 2}{sub ∞} layers separated by NO{sub 3}{sup −} anion groups. The results of optical diffuse-reflectance spectrum measurements and electronic structure calculations based on density functional theory methods show that the two compounds are wide band-gap semiconductors. - Graphical abstract: Two novel bismuth{sup III} selenite/tellurite nitrates [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}](NO{sub 3}) with 3D tunnel structure and [Bi(TeO{sub 3})](NO{sub 3}) with 2D layer structure have been firstly synthesized and characterized. Display Omitted - Highlights: • Two novel bismuth{sup III} nitrates [(Bi{sub 3}O{sub 2})(SeO{sub 3}){sub 2}](NO{sub 3}) and [Bi(TeO{sub 3})](NO{sub 3}) were firstly synthesized. • The two compounds were wide band-gap semiconductors.
