Nominal $Pb_2F_eR_eO_6$ adopts a defect pyrochlore structure at ambient pressure unlike the other $A_2F_eR_eO_6$ (A = Ca, Sr, Ba). Rietveld refinement of the crystal structure of one of the compositions $Pb_2F_eR_eO_6._1$ from powder XRD data shows that the structure is cubic pyrochlore (a = 10.382 Å; space group: Fd3m) where oxygen vacancies occur at O2 (8b) sites. The divergence between the ZFC and FC magnetic susceptibility data and the non-Arrhenius resistivity behaviour of $Pb_2F_eR_eO_6_._1$ compositions are characteristic of the underlying geometrically frustrated Fe/Re cation sublattice in the pyrochlore structure.
