Herein are reported the first results and the discussion about the oxidation of the highly stable aqueous solution of sodium dodecahydro-closo-dodecaborate Na2B12H12, a potential anodic fuel for energy conversion devices (fuel cells). The anion B12H12− is indeed chemically stable: it has an excellent stability over 3 weeks in both alkaline and acidic media; and heterogeneous hydrolysis does not take...
