The title compounds crystallise as solvent-separated ion triplets incorporating the first structurally authenticated examples of a monomeric species with lithium coordinated by three rather than two amide anions; the compounds, products of a heavier alkali metal mediated ligand cleavage reaction, can be viewed as the products of an incomplete metathesis reaction due to their heterobimetallic nature.
