Abstract

In the title compound, [Li(C12H10O2P)(C4H8O)]n, the O atoms of adjacent and bridging di­phenyl­phosphinate ligands and that from a tetra­hydro­furan (thf) mol­ecule are arranged in a tetrahedral manner around the Li atoms, resulting in a one-dimensional array (parallel to the a axis) of alternate eight-membered and rectangular planar four-membered rings [the two Li-O distances are 1.962 (6) and 1.991 (6) Å, and the Li-O-Li and O-Li-O angles are 88.3 (2) and 91.7 (2)°, respectively]. The Li-O distances for the O atoms of the phosphinate ligand are 1.992 (6) (for the -O atom) and 1.897 (6) Å, and the distance from Li to the O atom of the thf ligand is 2.028 (6) Å.
