Title: The lithium–water configuration encapsulated by uranyl peroxide cage cluster U 24

Abstract

Li and H2O encapsulated in the uranyl peroxide cage cluster U24 at 110 K are in square pyramidal and octahedral coordination environments, as dictated by the symmetry and topology of U24, in contrast to Li cations between the cages that are tetrahedrally coordinated by H2O. The ordered distribution of Li found here deviates from earlier studies at higher temperatures that reported a dynamic distribution.
