Abstract

New polyoxometalate `sandwiches' have been formed where two P2W15O56](12-)lacunary Dawson clusters encapsulate two transition metal ions to give clusters with the general formula M-2(II)(P2W15O56)(2)](20-) (where M = Mn, Co, and Ni respectively), Fe-2(III)(P2W15O56)(2)](18-), and Cu-4(II)(P2W15O56)2](16-). The Mn, Co, and Ni clusters exhibit a hitherto unseen alpha beta beta alpha isomeric geometry and all five compounds are associated with tetrabutylammonium cations which allow for their dissolution in non-aqueous solvent.
