Novel Polyoxometalate Structures

Last Updated: 11/22/2012

Polyoxometalates (POMs) are attractive inorganic ligands that can incorporate and stabilize multinuclear transition metal centers because of their multiple vacant sites and electron accepting ability. These transition-metal-substituted POMs (TMSPs) have many applications such as in catalytic, biomedical, photochromic and magnetic fields etc., which depend closely on the topologies of these complexes. Therefore, making TMSPs with novel structures is of high interest in our group.  Several new TMSPs made in group have shown their unique catalytic properties in light-driven water oxidation systems.
