The structure of the only structurally yet uncharacterized alkali saccharinate, lithium saccharinate, is reported, together with the infrared spectra of its protonated and partially deuterated analogues. The compound crystallizes as strongly hygroscopic colorless triclinic crystal blocks of a 11/6 hydrate, LiC7H4NO3S·11/6H 2O, space group P1, with unit cell dimensions a = 10.070(1), b = 15.755(2), c = 19.134(2) Å, α = 68.085(2), β = 76.940(2), γ = 84.169(2)°, V = 2743.0(5) Å3 and Z = 12 at T = 200(2) K.
