(Formula presented) compounds (Formula presented) were studied for average Li concentration (Formula presented) using photoelectron spectroscopy. Strong evidence is found for the formation of (Formula presented) dimers, as well as a second phase. The study suggests that the smallest alkali-metal Li bonds to (Formula presented) largely ionically for certain configurations. An investigation of the Li (Formula presented) level shows that under certain conditions the energetics favor a backdonation of the transferred electron to the Li ion.
