    The crystals of the title compound, [Li2(C3H 6O)4(H2O)2]-[Li2(C 3H6O)2(H2O)4] [Li(C 32H16N8)]4, were obtained by a recrystallization of dilithium phthalocyanine from an acetone/water/toluene solution. The title structure consists of two independent Li-phthalocyanine complexes along with acetone-bridged lithium dimers. The lithium dimers are located on inversion centers. The crystal structure is stabilized by a network of hydrogen bonds.
