Two data sets were collected out to sintheta/lambda=0.91 Aring -1: one on a twinned crystal, the other on a single crystal. Positional and thermal parameters from the two data sets show only random deviations. Somewhat high Rw( F2) values of 0.084 and 0.081, respectively, resulted from the refinement of a spherical-atom model. This reflects the inadequacies of such a model. Introduction of multipolar deformation functions for the single-crystal data set brought the Rw( F2) value down to 0.029. The crystal contains one independent Li + ion with fivefold coordination, a tetrahedrally coordinated H 2O molecule and an NO 2- ion which accepts two medium-strength hydrogen bonds [O-H...O 2.755 (1); O-H...N 2.890 (1) Aring] and has three Li +-O contacts. The static deformation density for the NO 2- ion shows N-O bond maxima of 0.50 e Aring -3; O lone-pair maxima of 0.20-0.30 e Aring -3 are situated in the molecular planes at approximately 90deg to the N-O bonds. The lone-pair density associated with the water O is markedly asymmetric; no support for this effect has been found in theoretical model calculations, however.
