Premium polyoxometalates! The organic functionalization of 3 d-metalsubstituted polyoxometalates and the synthesis of new metal-oxo clusters with accessible 3 d- and 4 f-metal centers suitable for organic derivatization are discussed in this thesis. A total number of 39 compounds were structurally characterized, and their luminescent and magnetic properties analyzed. The solution behavior was studied by NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and light-scattering techniques.
