    Solvothermal techniques allow the crystallization of high nuclearity products that are otherwise inaccessible by conventional techniques, directly from the reaction mixture. By this method, the reaction of the triangular species [Fe3O(OAc)6-(H2O)3] CI with benzotriazole (BtaH) produces an [Fe14] cluster (depicted) with a very large spin ground state.
