Using multifunctional organocations a novel heteropolyanion, [(P4W6O34)2Co2Na2(H2O)2]18−, with unprecedented structural features, has been observed, and extension of these clusters from molecules into 1D chains occurs through a dimeric cobalt species, with this material exhibiting reversible colour/magnetic susceptibility changes upon dehydration.
