Formation of an Oxalate‐filled Cavity in a Reduced Cyclic Octanuclear Polyoxomolybdate [(n‐C4H9)4N]2[Mo8O16(OCH3)8(C2O4)] formed from α‐[(n‐C4H9)4N]4[Mo8O26] and Rhodizonic Acid

Abstract

An unusual complex with planar Mo8 eight‐membered ring, the title compound 1, is formed by insertion of the CO groups of rhodizonic acid (cyclo‐C6(O)4(OH)2) into MnO bonds. The acid is subsequently degraded to oxalate (C atoms white), which remains in the cavity (the eight terminal CH3 groups are not shown). (Figure Presented.)
