For pt.CXIX see Z. Naturforsch. a, vol.32, p.134 (1977). The crystal structure of lithium nitrate trihydrate, LiNO 3.3H 2O, has been determined by X-ray diffraction at 295K. The crystal is orthorhombic, space group Cmcm, a=6.8018 (4), b=12.7132 (9), c=5.9990 (4) Aring, V=518.75 Aring 3, Z=4. The nitrate ions, Li + ions and one of the two crystallographically non-equivalent water molecules lie in a mirror plane and are bonded to atoms in adjacent planes through the second water molecule. The Li + ion is octahedrally surrounded by six O atoms, four belonging to water molecules and two to nitrate ions. The two non-equivalent water molecules are present in the structure in distinctly different bonding situations. One is bonded to two Li + ions and is the donor of two hydrogen bonds. The other is involved in six hydrogen bonds: the O atom accepts two hydrogen bonds, and both protons are involved in bifurcated hydrogen bonds.
