We have synthesized and structurally characterized the monolanthanide-containing polyanions [Ln(beta2-SiW11O39)2]13- (Ln = La (1), Ce (2), Sm (3), Eu (4), Gd (5), Tb (6), Yb (7), Lu (8)). Synthesis was accomplished by reaction of the respective lanthanide ion with the monolacunary Keggin-type precursor [beta2-SiW11O39]8- in a 1:2 molar ratio in 1 M KCl medium at pH 5. Polyanions 1-8 were isolated as potassium salts and then characterized by IR, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, and elemental as… CONTINUE READING
