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: A new polynuclear copper-complex-substituted dimeric tungstoarsenate(V), H2[{Cu(2,2′-bpy)}8(H2O)2(AsW9O34)2]·12H2O (1) (2,2′-bpy = 2,2′-bipydine), was synthesized hydrothermally and its structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The title compound has Ci symmetry and consists of two trilacunary Keggin anions [α-AsW9O34]9– supported by eight copper complex cations. The compound was also characterized by IR and fluorescence spectroscopy, TG analysis, and magnetic measurements. The emission spectrum of the compound in solid-state exhibits a redshift relative to those of Na8[A-HAsW9O34]·11H2O and the free ligand 2,2′-bpy. Magnetic measurements of the compound indicate competing ferro- and antiferromagnetic intramolecular coupling among the CuII atoms in the cluster anion.

    ABSTRACT: Interaction of the dilacunary polyanion precursor[γ-GeW10O36]8– with Ni2+ ions in aqueous medium (pH 5.5) resulted in the formation of the dimeric, tetranickel(II)-containing 20-tungsto-2-germanate [{β-GeNi2W10O36(OH)2(H2O)}2]12– (1). Polyanion 1 is composed of two lacunary (β-GeW10O37) units accommodating two Ni2+ ions each and linked through two triply bridging OH groups. Single-crystal X-ray analysis was carried out on K10Ni[{β-GeNi2W10O36(OH)2(H2O)}2]·28H2O (KNi-1), which crystallizes in the triclinic system. The title compound KNi-1 was characterized by IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, single-crystal XRD, thermogravimetric analysis, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Magnetization measurements on KNi-1 revealed that the title polyanion 1 exhibits an antiferromagnetically coupled Ni4 core. (© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 69451 Weinheim, Germany, 2009)

    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.
