The peeling of an onion: Embedded in the voids of an infinite cationic [Te32Ni30X3O90]5+ network lies an icosahedral [Ni4X13]5- anionic guest cluster (ochre). It may be considered wrapped and trapped in a successive series of concentric skins made from the lone pairs of Te atoms (blue), the Te (yellow), O (red), and Ni atoms (light blue polyhedra). But are there any other guests?
