Unsymmetrical functionalization of a discrete α-{SiW 12O40} Keggin with two heterometallic building blocks, a Cu(ii) dimer and a Cu(ii) monomer, results in the formation of [{Cu 2(O2CMe)2(5,5′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipy) 2}{Cu(5,5′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipy)2}SiW 12O40] that displays interesting physical properties.
