Abstract

A polyoxometalate-templated silver thiolate nanocluster, [Ag62(StBu)40(Mo20O66)(Mo6O19)3(CH3CN)2]·(CF3SO3)4 (1), has been isolated, in which a giant peanut-like silver(I)-thiolate cluster [Ag62(StBu)40]22+ encapsulates an unprecedented [Mo20O66]12− polyoxoanion core. It opens a new approach for the synthesis of both elusive polyoxometalates and high-nuclearity silver(I)-thiolate nanoclusters.
