Two rare examples of the crystal structures of large molecular clusters formed from the lithium salts of multianions are reported; the first is the dilithium salt of phenylhydrazine, which forms a tetrameric cage with a core of eight Li and eight N centres; the second is a 32-membered cage which forms from the aggregation of two [B(NNPh)3]6- hexaanions, two [NH-NPh]2- dianions and 16 Li+ cations.
