Abstract

Synthesised in the presence of trace quantities of water, which can account for its central oxo anion, the tetradecalithium title compound represents a rare three-dimensional, high-oligomeric cage arrangement in an area generally populated by pseudo-two-dimensional ring and ladder structures.
