Three novel supramolecular assemblies constructed from polyoxometalate and crown ether building blocks, [(DB18C6)Na(H(2)O)(1.5)](2)Mo(6)O(19).CH(3)CN, 1, and [(Na(DB18C6)(H(2)O)(2))(3)(H(2)O)(2)]XMo(12)O(40).6DMF.CH(3)CN (X = P, 2, and As, 3; DB18C6 = dibenzo-18-crown-6; DMF = N,N-dimethylfomamide), have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, IR, UV-vis, EPR, TG, and single crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1 crystallizes in the tetragonal space group P4/mbm with a = 16.9701(6) A, c = 14.2676(4) A, and Z = 2. Compound 2 crystallizes in the hexagonal space group P6(3)/m with a = 15.7435(17) A, c = 30.042(7) A, gamma = 120 degrees, and Z = 2. Compound 3 crystallizes in the hexagonal space group P6(3)/m with a = 15.6882(5) A, c = 29.9778(18) A, gamma = 120 degrees, and Z = 2. Compound 1 exhibits an unusual three-dimensional network with one-dimensional sandglasslike channels based on the extensive weak forces between the oxygen atoms on the [Mo(6)O(19)](2)(-) polyoxoanions and the CH(2) groups of crown ether molecules. Compounds 2 and 3 are isostructural, and both contain a novel semiopen cagelike trimeric cation [(Na(DB18C6)(H(2)O)(2))(3)(H(2)O)(2)](3+). In their packing arrangement, an interesting 2-D "honeycomblike" "host" network is formed, in which the [XMo(12)O(40)](3)(-) (X = As and P) polyoxoanion "guests" resided.
