This communication presents the first synthesis of nanoconfined Lithium closo-borate, Li2B12H12, using nanoporous SiO2 as scaffold. The yield of Li2B12H12 is up to 94 mol%. The as-synthesized nanoconfined Li2B12H12 exhibits a structural transition around 380 °C and conversion to H-deficiency Li2B12H12-x at 580 °C.
