A simple procedure is reported for the isolation of the new lacunary tungstotellurate(iv) [Te2W17O61]12- (1a) in multi-gram quantities, with 125Te and 183W NMR spectroscopy indicating retention of the solid state structure in solution. The structurally related polyanions [Te2W16O 58(OH)2]14- (2a) and [Te2W 18O62(OH)2]10- (2b) were also isolated.
