- The title compound, [Li3(C4F9O)3(C3H6O)3], features an open Li/O cube with an Li ion missing at one corner. Three of the four bridging O atoms of the cube carry a fluorinated tert-butyl residue, whereas the fourth is part of an acetone molecule. Two of the Li atoms are further bonded to a non-bridging acetone molecule. Two of the lithium ion coordination geometries are very distorted LiO4 tetrahedra; the third could be described as a very distorted LiO3 T-shape with two distant F-atom neighbours. The Li[cdots, three dots, centered]Li contact distances for the three-coordinate Li+ ion [2.608 (14) and 2.631 (12) Å] are much shorter that the contact distance [2.940 (13) Å] between the tetrahedrally coordinated species.
