[en] Binary lithium silicides play a crucial role in high energy density anode materials for rechargeable batteries. During charging processes of Si anodes LiSi is formed as a metastable phase which has been stabilized through Li by Mg, Zn and Al substitution. Here we investigate Li by Zn substitution in the lithium-richest phase LiSi and report on the particular site preference of Zn atoms since Zn is substituting Li atoms only on one out of 13 possible lithium sites. This site preference shows an interesting relation to the closely related phase LiSi and thus LiZnSi with ε = 0.025(1) and δ = 0.033(1) can be considered as the missing link between the structures of LiSi (= LiSi) and LiSi (= LiSi).
