The crystal structures of the room and the high temperature modifications of cesium trifluoromethyl sulfonate were solved from high resolution X-ray powder diffraction data. At room temperature, alpha-CsSO3CF3 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2(1) with lattice parameters a = 9.7406(2) angstrom, b = 6.1640(1) angstrom, c = 5.4798(1) angstrom, and beta = 104.998(1)degrees; Z = 2. At temperatures above T = 380 K, a second order phase transformation towards a disordered C-centered orthorhombic phase in space group Cmcm occurs with lattice parameters at T = 492 K of a = 5.5074(3) angstrom, b = 19.4346(14) angstrom, and c = 6.2978(4) angstrom; Z = 4. Within the crystal structures, the triflate anions are arranged in double layers with the apolar CF3-groups pointing towards each other. The cesium ions are located between the SO3-groups. CsSO3CF3 shows a specific ion conductivity ranging from sigma = 1.06 center dot 10(-8) Scm(-1) at T = 393 K to sigma = 5.18 center dot 10(-4) Scm(-1) at T = 519 K.
