Abstract

An adaptable polyoxometalate macrocycle: The crown-type polyoxometalate [P8W48O184]40− has been prepared in the absence of potassium to give two new mixed lithium/ammonium compounds, allowing cation binding within the heteropolyanion to be investigated. Characterization of binding sites in the {P8W48} cluster could enable prediction of reaction products and selective functionalization of internal and external binding sites.
