tert-Butylphosphonic acid and lanthanide precursors were employed to construct two high-nuclearity hybrid silver(I)-ytterbium(III) phosphonate clusters: compound 1 consists of a Ag16 ethynide cluster fused with a trinuclear hydroxoytterbium phosphonate cluster, whereas compound 2 is composed of two Ag16 ethynide clusters bridged by a hexanuclear oxo/hydroxoytterbium phosphonate cluster. Using transition-metal-substituted lacunary polyoxotungstates in place of the lanthanide reactant, new… Expand
