Aiming development of the fast anion conductors, we proposed a new material design using flexible molecular cation as a host cation, and demonstrated it with fluoride ion conduction in NH4MgF3 and (NH4)2MgF4 based materials. Dominant fluoride ion conduction with relatively high conductivities of 4.8 × 10–5 S cm−1 and 8.4 × 10–6 S cm−1 were achieved at 323 K in (NH4)2(Mg0.85Li0.15)F3.85 and NH4(Mg0.9Li0.1)F2.9, respectively. It is implied that the molecular cation in the host lattice can assist the anion conduction. Our findings suggest molecular cation-containing compounds can be attractive material groups for fast anion conductors.
