Structural diversity of lithium neopentoxide compounds.


The reaction of LiN(SiMe(3))(2) with 1 equiv of HOCH(2)CMe(3) (HONep) in toluene led to the formation of [Li(mu3-ONep)](8) (1). The complex adopts a novel dual-edge fused hexagon-square prismatic structure with a C(2v) axis of rotation that relates the top and bottom eight-membered rings. Substituting the noncoordinating solvent toluene for a Lewis basic… (More)
