A new polymorph of CsB5O8 has been synthesized. Its crystal structure was determined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction spectroscopy. The new polymorph of CsB5O8 with new B10O19 building blocks containing helical chains has been synthesized. The relation and differences of tunnels contained in all of the CsB5O8 polymorphs are discussed to show the exciting diversity of cesium pentaborate.
