Extremely few solid-state structures of mixed-metal or unimetallic mixed-anion "superbase" complexes are known. The title compound prepared from the chiral amine (S)-α-(methylbenzyl)benzyl-amine and a 3:1 mixture of tBuOK and nBuLi with addition of THF and N,N,N′,N′-tetramethylethylene-diamine, is shown to be polymeric in the solid state (see picture).
