The new Zintl anion [Sn4Bi4]4−, synthesized by dissolving CsSnBi in liquid ammonia, forms a monocapped nortricyclane-like cage. Its electron localization function (ELF) analysis shows evidence for 3-centre bonding. The analogous reaction with KSnBi results in a crystallographically fully ordered tetrahedral [Sn2Bi2]2− ion.
