Calcium dodecahydro-closo-dodecaborate, CaB12H12, was calculated to have a percolating Ca migration path with low activation barrier (650 meV). The formation of Ca vacancies required for diffusion was calculated to be thermodynamically feasible by substitution of Ca with Al, Bi, or a number of trivalent rare-earth cations
