Clusters with a click: The chemistry of icosahedral borane closomers has been combined with click chemistry for the first time. This approach provided a facile syntheses of diverse 12-fold closomer nanoparticles (see scheme; R=alkyl or aryl) which could be adapted for biomedical and material applications.
