We have grown single crystals of BaH2SiO4by hydrothermal method. The crystal structure has been studied by direct method. Based on the 1792 unique reflections collected using Mo Kα of X-ray radiation and a CCD-based detector, it is refined to an agreement index (R1) of 6.36%. The cell is triclinic with dimensions: a = 7.0790, b = 7.3620, c = 7.5824Å and α = 89.640°, β = 88.785°, γ = 88.230°. There are four unit cells of BaH2SiO4in the cell, with space group P1̄.
