Li12Cu12.60Al14.37 crystallizes as a new structure type and belongs to the Laves phases structural family. The pseudo-Frank–Kasper polyhedra are typical for the Li and Al atoms. The polyhedra around the statistical mixtures of (Cu,Al)1 and (Al,Cu)2 are distorted icosa­hedra. The electronic structure calculations by the TB–LMTO–ASA method show strong Al—Al inter­actions.
