Complex clusters the size of small proteins can be generated in reduced molybdate solutions by linking defined fragments. An example of this is the giant cluster (NH4)25±5[Mo154(NO)14O420(OH)28(H2O)70]·ca. 350 H2O with a molar mass of more than 30000 gmol−1, the anion of which is shaped like a tire with a nanodimensional cavity more than 20 Å in diameter and has an extremely large inner and outer surface as well as a large number of mobile electrons.
