Cagey silicon: A silicon cluster, consisting of sixteen silicon atoms and composed of an octasilacuneane core (red, see picture) fused with cyclotetrasilanes (orange), was synthesized by reductive tetramerization of tetrachlorocyclotetrasilane. Analytical and theoretical studies reveal the unique structural and electronic features of this organosilicon cluster.
