#chempaperaday Day 13/365: "A Twelve-Coordinated Iodide in a Cuboctahedral Silver(I) Skeleton"

I was attracted by the nice colors and the geometry of the complex. I read most of it and I had to skip the DFT parts again. I am really dying to know what it is. 

Anyway, it's really good to see a high coordination number like this one has. Also there is some discussion about molecular orbitals, symmetry and the point group of the complex which is my favorite part!
