The boron-rich cobaltabisdicarbollide (COSAN) and its 8,8′-I2 derivative (I2-COSAN), both of purely inorganic nature, are shown to accumulate within living cells, where they can be detected using νB–H Raman microspectroscopy. This demonstrates an alternative method for cell labelling and detection.
