Abstract

Reaction of [(n-C4H9)4N] 2[Mo2O7] with 2-hydroxymethyl-2-methylpropane- 1,3-diol yields [(C4H9)4N]2[Mo 8O20(OMe)4{MeC(MeO)3}2] (1), an alkoxypolyoxomolybdate consisting of two tetranuclear [Mo 4O10(OMe)2{MeC(CH2O) 3]- moieties, composed of edge-sharing MoO6 octahedra, which are connected via two corner-sharing interactions through bridging oxo-groups; thermal degradation of (1) yields dimethyl ether, formaldehyde, methanol, and water as gaseous products.
