Abstract

The molecule of the title dimeric compound, [Li2Cl2(C13­H30O6P2)2] or [LiCl{[(iPrO)2P(O)]2CH2}]2, lies about an inversion center and features tetrahedrally coordinated Li atoms. The neutral ligands each chelate to one metal center and bridge to the other center through P=O units. Unusually for lithium chloride complexes, the Cl ions are in terminal rather than bridging positions. Principal dimensions include Li-O(four-membered ring) = 1.959 (3) and 2.056 (3) î.., Li-O(phosphonate ring) = 1.929 (3) î.., and Li-Cl = 2.293 (3) î...
