Abstract

A boron-rich supramolecular cuboctahedron containing an impressive 240 boron atoms has been synthesized via coordination-driven assembly. The cuboctahedron, which is composed of Cu2+ paddle-wheel nodes and carborane-isophthalic acids, was obtained simply and in high purity. The ability to precisely characterize the nanostructure via X-ray diffraction makes it unique among boron-rich nanostructures.
