The crystal structures of LiReO3 and Li2ReO3, obtained by Li insertion into ReO3, were determined by neutron diffraction powder profile analysis. For both phases, the ReO3 host lattice, made exclusively of corner-shared octahedra, was altered significantly on Li insertion without breaking bonds. The original 12-coordinated perovskite-like cavity was changed into two octahedral sites, which are occupied by the lithium ions.
