The molecular structure of [Li(thf)3 · Sn(SiMe3)3], prepared by a new, one-pot synthesis in 44% yield, has been determined by a single crystal X-ray diffraction study using synchrotron radiation and a CCD detector. The +Li(thf)3 and −Sn(SiMe3)3 moieties are joined by a Li–Sn bond, 2.865(5) Å in length. [Li(thf)3 · Sn(SiMe3)3] is isomorphous with its germanium analogue.
