The title compound {systematic name: poly[[aqualithium]-μ-3,3,8,8-tetramethyl-1,4,6,9-tetraoxa-5λ4-borataspiro[4.4]nonane-2,7-dione]}, [Li(C8H12BO6)(H2O)]n (LiBMLB), forms a 12-membered macrocycle, which lies across a crystallographic inversion center. The lithium cations are pseudo-tetrahedrally coordinated by three methyllactate ligands and a water molecule. The asymmetric units couple across crystallographic inversion centers, forming the 12-membered macrocycles. These macrocycles, in turn, cross-link through the Li+ cations, forming an infinite polymeric structure in two dimensions parallel to (101).
