A new, fast, and straightforward synthetic route for the new cluster compound [Nb6Cli12(CH3OH)a4Cla2]·6CH3OH, taking advantage of the special solubility properties of tetracyanoborate salts has been established, and the single-crystal X-ray structure of this compound, which is a promising starting material for new cluster phases, has been determined.
