We demonstrate the existence of discrete single molecular [Mo132] Keplerate-type clusters in aqueous solution. Starting from a discrete spherical [Mo132] cluster, the formation of an open-basket-type [Mo116] defect structure is shown for the first time in solution using analytical ultracentrifugation sedimentation velocity experiments.
