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: Four new organic–inorganic hybrid compounds based on dmso-coordinated heteropolytungstates as [Ru(bpy)3]2+ (Rubpy) salts {[Ru(bpy)3]2Na2[Sb2W22(dmso)4O72]·4dmso·4H2O (1a), [Ru(bpy)3]2Na2[Bi2W22(dmso)4O72]·4dmso·4H2O (2a), [Ru(bpy)3]2[Sb2W20Fe2(dmso)8O68]·9dmso·12H2O (3a), [Ru(bpy)3]2[Bi2W20Fe2(dmso)8O68]·9dmso·12H2O (4a)} have been synthesized and characterized by IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, thermogravimetry, cyclic voltammetry, X-ray powder diffraction and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structural analyses indicate that the dmso molecules are coordinated onto the polyanion frameworks through four W–O–S(CH3)2 bonds for 1a and 2a, six Fe–O–S(CH3)2 and two W–O–S(CH3)2 bonds for 3a and 4a. The compounds 1a–4a represent novel members of dmso-coordinated tungstoantimonates and tungstobismuthates prepared by routine synthetic reactions in the mixed solutions with dmso/H2O (1:1, v/v). The cyclic voltammetry studies of 1a–4a in dmso/H2SO4 medium using the glassy carbon electrode as a working electrode show the respective electrochemical behaviors of the W and Ru centers within 1a and 2a, and the W, Fe and Ru centers within 3a and 4a.(© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

    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)
