A structure incorporating two eclipsed Cu3 triangles, three bridging μ3‐WSe 42− units, and two capping μ3‐Se atoms is formed from a cubane‐like CuSeW cluster on treatment with Li2Se. This product pictured here (one Se atom is omitted at each W atom) exemplifies one of the structural possibilities for the little‐studied selenidometalates. (Figure Presented.)
