Water-insoluble phosphine-surface-stabilised rhodium clusters [Rh6 (PR3)6 H12] [BAr4F]2 (R = cyclohexyl, ArF = (3,5-CF3)2C6H3) can be immobilised onto suitable glassy carbon, graphite, or tin-doped indium oxide (ITO) electrode surfaces. When immersed into alcohol/aqueous electrolyte media, they display stable voltammetric responses consistent with the formation of organic microdroplet
