Abstract

Several polyoxometalate-supported metal carbonyl complexes, K7Na3P2W23O80{Re(CO)3}2·38H2O (1), (C3H10N)8Na2P2W23O80{Re(CO)3}2·10H2O (1a) and (C3H10N)6KNa3P2W23O80{Mn(CO)3}2·7H2O (2), have been prepared from the dimerization of the monovacant Keggin [α-PW11O39]7− with metal carbonyl complexes [M(CO)3]+ (M = Re, Mn) in acidic aqueous solutions. The resulting “twisted-sandwich” architectures are chiral, but their crystalline solids are racemic. A detailed investigation involving syntheses, crystal structures, and electrochemistry is presented.
