Figure 6
Crystal packing of LiDDQ·2H2O·Me2CO (data collected at 120 K) viewed in the [100] direction. Alkali cations are depicted as violet spheres of arbitrary radius. The C=O group of Me2CO acts as a proton acceptor in hydrogen bonding to water molecules, whereas the methyl groups of the acetone molecules form a hydrophobic channel between hydrogen-bonded chains of radical anions stabilized by Li+.  [article HTML]
