Abstract

The title compound, an artefact of recrystallization of lithium bromide from improperly dried quinoline, has been characterized by a single-crystal X-ray structure determination. Crystals are triclinic, P1, a 16.608(9), b 12.27(1), c 7.962(8)Å, α 101.98(8), β91.79(7), γ 92.27(6), Z 2; R was 0.058 for 2404 ‘observed’ reflections. The cation is the first to be structurally defined for a [Li(OH2)2 (N-base)2]+ system; Li-O are 1.92(2), 1.93(2) Å and Li-N 2.12(2), 2.14(2) Å.
