Title: Response to reply on “Structural and magnetic behavior of the cubic oxyfluoride SrFeO{sub 2}F studied by neutron diffraction”

Clemens et al. reported on the results published by us (Thompson et al. J. Solid State Chem. 219 (2014) 173–178) on the crystal structure of SrFeO{sub 2}F, which they suggest to actually crystallize in the orthorhombic space group Imma rather than the cubic Pm-3m structure at lower temperatures (Clemens et al. J. Solid State Chem. (2015), (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jssc.2015.02.022)). In this report, we provide evidence to support their claim that at lower temperatures (<523 K) the structure is evidently Imma. Furthermore, we will highlight the significance of our previous report and comment on the proposed explanations of the magnetic behavior of SrFeO{sub 2}F reported by both groups.
