The crystal structure of Sr6Co5O14.3 has been analyzed by X-ray diffraction of a c-axis elongated prismatic single crystal grown by a flux method. Sr6Co5O14.3 is an oxygen deficient phase of Sr6Co5O15 that contains one-dimensional columns of Co-O octahedra and triangular prisms. Oxygen defects are preferentially introduced in an O site shared by the Co-O triangular prism and octahedron in the structure of Sr6Co 5O15. The average structure of Sr6Co 5O14.3 is refined by splitting the oxygen defect site with the rhombohedral space group R3 (a = 9.4334(6) Åand c = 12.5156(6)Å).
