A series of $M_{0.5}Bi_3P_2O_{10}$ compounds with M = Ca, Sr, Ba and Pb have been synthesized in $MO-Bi_2O_3-P_2O_5$ ternary systems by the ceramic method and the crystal structures were then solved using single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. These compounds are isostructural with $Bi_{6.67}P_4O_{20}$ (triclinic, space group P\bar{1}, Z = 2). The structures consist of infinite chains of $Bi_2O_2$ units along the c axis formed by linking $BiO_8$ and $BiO_6$ polyhedra. These chains are interconnected by $MO_8$ polyhedra forming two-dimensional layers in the ac plane. The phosphate tetrahedra are sandwiched between these layers.
