Polyoxometalate based open-frameworks (POM-OFs).
It is shown that it is possible to construct POM-OF materials and design and/or fine tune their functionality by manipulating the initially generated building block libraries as well as by controlling the self-assembly towards the specific intermediate (POM) species. 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
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
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
Investigating the formation of "molybdenum blues" with gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry.
Gel electrophoresis and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry are combined to investigate the effect of the pH and the ratio of reactants and reducing agents, R, on the complex underlying set of equilibria that make up MBs to lead to a greater understanding of the complex reaction networks underpinning the assembly of this family of nanoclusters.

Efficient concurrent removal of sulfur and nitrogen contents from complex oil mixtures by using polyoxometalate-based composite materials
The increasingly stringent regulations in relation to the environmental impact of employed industrial processes make compulsory the development of alternative routes towards the reduction of sulfurExpand
Connecting theory with experiment to understand the initial nucleation steps of heteropolyoxometalate clusters.
It is postulate that the first key steps of nucleation into discrete, high nuclearity heteropolyanions proceed via the formation of isodinuclear species, which undergo successive steps of protonation and water condensation to form a heterotrinuclear fragment. Expand
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
Programmable Surface Architectures Derived from Hybrid Polyoxometalate-Based Clusters
The exploration of the self-organization of a range of the polyoxometalate-based molecular structures reveals a diverse range of surface patterns and morphologies on solid substrates of technologicalExpand
