Polyoxometalates: building blocks for functional nanoscale systems.
The possibilities of creating highly sophisticated functional hierarchical systems with multiple, interdependent, functionalities along with a critical analysis that allows the non-specialist to learn the salient features of POMs are discussed. Expand
Design and fabrication of memory devices based on nanoscale polyoxometalate clusters
Results show that POMs have the potential to be used as a realistic nanoscale flash memory, and suggests a route to the practical integration of configurable molecules in MOS technologies as the lithographic scales approach the molecular limit. Expand
Controlling an organic synthesis robot with machine learning to search for new reactivity
An organic synthesis robot is presented that can perform chemical reactions and analysis faster than they can be performed manually, as well as predict the reactivity of possible reagent combinations after conducting a small number of experiments, thus effectively navigating chemical reaction space.

3D printed high-throughput hydrothermal reactionware for discovery, optimization, and scale-up.
S sealed, monolithic reactors suitable for use in hydrothermal synthesis have been digitally designed and realized and used to discover two new coordination polymers, optimize the synthesis of one of these, and scale-up its synthesis using larger reactors produced on the same 3D printer. Expand
Unveiling the Transient Template in the Self-Assembly of a Molecular Oxide Nanowheel
The template’s role in the self-assembly mechanism is further confirmed by the deliberate addition of the template to the reaction mixture, which greatly accelerates the assembly time of the {Mo150} wheel and increases the yield. Expand
New approaches to the analysis of high connectivity materials: design frameworks based upon 4(4)- and 6(3)-subnet tectons.
This strategy is based on the visualization of the structures as combinations of interconnected layered 2-D sheets or subnet tectons and allows ready identification and interpretation of some of the most highly connected and complex architectures yet observed in materials chemistry. Expand
Assembly of a gigantic polyoxometalate cluster {W200Co8O660} in a networked reactor system.
A networked reactor system was used for the first time for the discovery and synthesis of new polyoxometalates, including the gigantic title system, which was used to screen multiple one-pot reactions and reaction variables for the automated syntheses of polyoxometricalates. Expand
Structural evolution of "S"-shaped [H4W22O74]12- and "section sign"-shaped [H10W34O116]18- isopolyoxotungstate clusters.
Finding the missing species: Two isopolyoxotungstate clusters with unprecedented “S”-shaped [H4W22O74]12− and “§”-shaped [H10W34O116]18− geometries are presented. The development of this structuralExpand
Self-assembly of a family of macrocyclic polyoxotungstates with emergent material properties
Using a time-dependent synthetic approach, the construction of a new class of macrocyclic tungstotellurite heteropolyacid cluster-squares, [W28Te8O112]24− (1a), [W28Te9O115]26− (2a) andExpand
