Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) studies of aqueous [Ta6O19](8-) compared to prior studies of aqueous [Nb6O19](8-) reveals key differences in behaviour, which is likely at the root of the difficultly in developing polyoxotantalate chemistry. Specifically, where contact ion-pairing dominates between [Nb6O19](8-) and its counterions, solvent-separated(More)
The disparate solubility, redox activity, and pH stability of the group V and group VI polyoxometalates (POMs) confer very different functionality on these species, and tailoring cluster properties by varying the ratio of group V to group VI metals poses both an opportunity and a synthetic challenge. A classic series of studies reported over 40 years ago(More)
