The cryo game: Heteroatom-embedded nanofunctional clusters are described that incorporate a [TeVIO6]6− species contained within a {W18O54} cage. Not only does the tellurium-based species activate the {W18O54} cluster surface for assembly of larger nanoscale structures, such as [H10TeVI2W58O198]26−, it also undergoes a redox transformation inside the cluster from [TeVIO6]6− to [TeIVO3]2−.
