Three discrete cobalt-substituted silicotungstates, [Co3(H 2O)(B-β-SiW9O34)(B-β-SiW 8O29(OH)2)]12- (1), [Co 3(H2O)(B-α-SiW9O34)(B-β- SiW8O31)]14- (2), and [Co9Cl 2(OH)3(H2O)9(B-β-SiW 8O31)3]17- (3), have been synthesized using a synthetic approach involving Co(ii) ions, the dilacunary [γ-SiW10O36]8- polyanion and a bulky organic cation in basic media; all three compounds have been fully characterized and their position as structural intermediates in Co-containing silicotungstate chemistry is described.
