An extraordinarily useful cluster to detail reaction pathways in water might have been obtained in form of [N-(CH3)4] 10[Ti12Nb6O44], a polyoxometalate with a central cavity. This compound is soluble in a range of solvents and has been characterized by ESI mass spectrometry and X-ray crystallography (see picture; [1]=[Ti12Nb6O44]10-). (Graph Presented)
