ABSTRACT Three high-nuclearity NiII-substituted polyoxometalate compounds functionalized by exogenous ligands have been synthesized and characterized. The octanuclear complexes in Na15[Na{(A-R-SiW9O34)Ni4(CH3COO)3(OH)3}2] . 4NaCl . 36H2O (1) and Na15[Na{(A-R-SiW9O34)Ni4(CH3COO)3(OH)2(N3)}2] . 32H2O (2) can be described as two {Ni4} subunits connected via a {Na(CH3COO)6} group, with the acetato ligands also ensuring in each subunit the connection between the paramagnetic centers. In 2, two azido groups replace two of the six mu-hydroxo ligands present in 1. The nonanuclear complex K7Na7[(A-R-SiW9O34)2Ni9(OH)6(H2O)6(CO3)3] . 42H2O (3) exhibits a double cubanestructure with two [(A-R-SiW9O34)Ni4(OH)3]5- subunits linked by three carbonato ligands. A ninth NiII center connected to one subunit via a carbonato ligand and a O=W group completes this asymmetric polyoxometalate.Electronic spectroscopy and electrochemical studies indicate that, while compounds 1-3 decompose in a pure aqueous medium, these complexes are very stable in a pH 6 acetate medium. The cyclic voltammetry pattern of each complex is constituted by a first eight-electron reduction wave followed by a second large-current intensity wave. The characteristics of the first waves of the complexes are clearly distinct from those obtained for their lacunary precursor [A-R-SiW9O34]10-, a feature that is due to the Ni centers in the complexes. Such observations of electroactive, stable, and highly nickel-rich polyoxometalates are not common. Measurements of the magnetic susceptibility revealed the occurrence of concomitant ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic interactions in 1 and 3.For both of these compounds, the extension of the magnetic exchange has been determined by means of a spin Hamiltonian with three and four J constants, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: The palladium(II) decorated tungstobismuthate(III) [Pd3 (H2O)9Bi2W22O76]8− (1) has been prepared by a simple one-pot reaction of PdCl2 with Na12[Bi2W22O74(OH)2] in aqueous acidic medium at pH 4.8. Polyanion1 represents a rare example of a structurally characterized palladium-containing polyoxometalate.

    ABSTRACT: Reaction of CuCl(2) x 2 H(2)O and trivacant Keggin polyoxoanion Na(9)[A-alpha-PW(9)O(34)] x 7 H(2)O in the presence of ethylene-diamine/1,2-diaminopropane (en/enMe) under hydrothermal conditions led to five novel inorganic-organic hybrid polyoxotungstates (POTs):[Cu(en)(2)](2)[Cu(en)(2)(H(2)O)](2)[Cu(H(2)O)(2)][Cu(4)(H(2)O)(2)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))(2)] x 2 H(2)O(1), [Cu(6)(mu(3)-OH)(3)(en)(3)(H(2)O)(5)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))] x 6 H(2)O (2), Na(6){[Cu(6)(mu(3)-OH)(3)(en)(3)(H(2)O)(2)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))](2)[Cu(4)(H(2)O)(2)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))(2)]} x 2 H(2)en x 8 H(2)O (3), [Cu(6)(mu(3)-OH)(3)(en)(3)(H(2)O)(3)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))] x 4 H(2)O (4), [Cu(II)(6)Cu(I)(4)(mu(6)-O)(OH)(18)][Cu(6)(mu(3)-OH)(3)(enMe)(3)(H(2)O)(3)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))](4) x 4 H(3)O x 2 H(2)O (5). 1 is a new 1D chain constructed from alternate tetra-Cu(II) sandwiched units [Cu(II)(4)(H(2)O)(2)(B-alpha-PW(9)O(34))(2)](10-) and dinuclear [Cu(II)(2)(H(2)O)(6)](4+) units. 2-5 are a series of novel transition-metal substituted polyoxometalates (TMSPs) comprising hexa-Cu(II) substituted {Cu(6)PW(9)} units (Cu(6) = Cu(6)(mu(3)-OH)(3), PW(9) = B-alpha-PW(9)O(34), Scheme 1). 2 is an unusual monomer. 3 is an unprecedented tetramer built by two types of TMSP units, [Cu(6)PW(9)(en)(3)(H(2)O)(2)] and [Cu(II)(4)(H(2)O)(2)(PW(9))(2)](10-). 4 is a novel chain assembled from [Cu(6)PW(9)(en)(3)(H(2)O)(3)] units by double-bridging mode. Most interestingly, 5 is a open framework made by [Cu(6)PW(9)(enMe)(3)(H(2)O)(3)] units, in which the novel decacopper oxygen clusters, [Cu(I)(4)Cu(II)(6)(mu(6)-O)(OH)(18)](4-) formed in situ, are encapsulated into the channels, and 5 represents the first decametallic-cluster-containing open framework built by TMSP units. 2-5 all contain the hexa-Cu(II) substituted POT unit {Cu(6)PW(9)L(3)(H(2)O)(n)} (L = en/enMe, n < 6) made by {Cu(6)L(3)(H(2)O)(n)} core and trivacant Keggin PW(9) fragments. Moreover, 3-5 can be viewed as combining derivatives of 2 through substituting water ligands on hexa-Cu(II) {Cu(6)L(3)(H(2)O)(n)} units by terminal oxygen atoms of PW(9) units. Importantly, the Cu(II)-polyhedra Jahn-Tell/pseudo-Jahn-Teller distortion plays a crucial role in the formation of 1-5. The magnetic behaviors of 2-5 show antiferromagnetic interactions between the Cu(II) ions in the hexa-Cu(II) cluster.

    ABSTRACT: A novel surfactant-encapsulated organic-inorganic hybrid compound (DODA)(24)Li[Cu(20)Cl(OH)(24)(P(8)W(48)O(184))] x 18 H(2)O (DODA-Cu20) has been prepared from the wheel-shaped tungstophosphate salt K(12)Li(13)[Cu(20)Cl(OH)(24)(H(2)O)(12)(P(8)W(48)O(184))] x 22 H(2)O (Cu20) and dimethyldioctadecylammonium bromide (DODA), and it has been characterized by elemental analysis (EA), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), (1)H NMR, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements. Monolayer and multilayer films of DODA-Cu20 were fabricated on different substrates by the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique using H(2)O as the subphase. Another type of organic-inorganic hybrid film, DODA/Cu20, was also deposited on the same substrates as used for the film containing DODA-Cu20 under the same conditions by the LB technique using a Cu20 aqueous solution as the subphase and DODA as the cationic amphiphile for comparison. Both thus-prepared organic-inorganic hybrid films were characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy, XRD, transmission and polarized FT-IR spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The results indicate that stable monolayers at the air-water interface for DODA-Cu20 and at the air-Cu20 solution interface for DODA can be formed and that two LB films containing DODA-Cu20 and DODA/Cu20 constructed by two different methods both exhibit well-ordered lamellar structures. It is proposed that Cu20 exhibits different packing modes in the two LB films depending on the deposition strategy used.
