Highly stable trimeric clusters of general formula LiFHFLiFXF (X F, Cl, Br) are predicted computationally. These clusters involve a LiFXF dyad, with both the positively charged Li and negatively charged F atom of LiF non-covalently bonded to the X atom of XF. A third molecule (LiF or HF) is complexed to this dyad via ionic-type FLi and Li(H)F interactions to form a substantially stronger cluster.
