The electron density in LiOH.H 2O has been determined by ab initio MO-LCAO-SCF calculations. All nearest neighbours to the H 2O molecule and the OH - ion, respectively, have been included explicitly in the calculations; next-nearest and more-distant neighbours have been simulated by point charges. The theoretical electron density maps are compared with experimental maps with good overall agreement. The influence of intermolecular bonding in the crystal is found to be twofold. Firstly, the overall polarization of the H 2O molecule and the OH - ion is increased significantly. Secondly, the electron density around the O nuclei in H 2O and OH - is rearranged, leading to the decrease of density in the lone-pair directions. The reasons for this decrease are discussed in some detail.
