The microwave-assisted reaction of (TBA)4[β-Mo8O24] and (TBA)3[H3V10O28] with pentaerythritol or tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane yields polyanions with the general formula (TBA)2[V3Mo3O16(O3-R)] (R: C5H8OH-1; R: C4H6NH2-3). Post-synthetic esterification of 1 yields the acylated derivative 2, with all compounds being characterized in the solid and solution state.
