48_27b/2009Inside Cover: A Spherical Molecule with a Carbon-Free Ih-C80 Topological Framework (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 27/2009)

Template-controlled self-assembly of discrete molecular pentaphosphaferrocene and CuCl units was used to form the first entirely carbon-free molecule that has C80 topology and encapsulates a carborane unit. In their Communication on page 5046 ff., M. Scheer and co-workers report the synthesis and characterization of this impressive supramolecular compound, which displays an electronic interaction between the carborane and the spherical host molecule.
