New polyoxometalate compounds built up of lacunary Wells-Dawson anions and trivalent lanthanide cations.


Journal Article

Five new polyoxometalate compounds built on lacunary Wells-Dawson anions and trivalent lanthanide cations, KNa3[Nd2(H2O)10(alpha2-P2W17O61)].11H2O (1), (H3O)[Nd3(H2O)17(alpha2-P2W17O61)].6.75H2O (2), (H2bpy)2[Nd2(H2O)9 (alpha2-P2W17O61)].4.5H2O (3), (H2bpy)2[La2(H2O)9(alpha2-P2W17O61)].4.5H2O (4), and (H2bpy)2[Eu2(H2O)9(alpha2-P2W17O61)].5H2O (5), have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, TG, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1 shows a bisupporting polyoxometalate cluster structure where two {Nd(H2O)7}3+ fragments are supported on the polyoxometalate dimer [{Nd(H2O)3(alpha2-P2W17O61)}2]14-; this represents the first bisupporting polyoxometalate compound based on a polyoxometalate dimer. Compound 2 displays a 1D chain structure built up of bisupporting polyoxoanions [{Nd(H2O)7}2{Nd(H2O)3(alpha2-P2W17O61)}2]8- and Nd3+ ions. Compounds 3-5 are isostructural and show a 2D structure constructed of 1D polyoxometalate chains of [Ln(H2O)2(alpha2-P2W17O61)]n(7n-) linked by Ln3+ ions. Compounds 2-5 represent the first extended structures formed by lacunary Wells-Dawson anions and trivalent lanthanide ions. The influence of the Ln3+/[alpha2-P2W17O61]10- ratio on the syntheses of these five compounds has been studied. Furthermore, the fluorescent activity of compound 5 is reported.
