Kukharenkoite-(Ce) is a barium cerium fluoride carbonate mineral, formula Ba3CeF(CO3)3. It was identified from samples found in the Mont-Saint-Hilaire alkaline intrusive complex, Quebec, and the Khibiny Massif, Kola peninsula, Russia. It was named for Russian mineralogist Alexander A. Kukharenko (1914–1993).[1][2]

The similar zhonghuacerite, a caesium containing mineral from China, is considered to be either kukharenkoite-(Ce) or huanghoite-(Ce) rather than a valid mineral.[3]
