The reaction of MoO3 and 2,4,6-tripyridyltriazine (tptz) in water at 180°C for 48h and pH 5.5 produces (H2tptz)2[Mo8O26]· 2H2O in 70% yield. The structure is constructed from δ-Mo8O264- clusters, H2tptz2+ and H3O+ cations linked through hydrogen bonding into a network. Crystal data: C18H16Mo4N6O14; monoclinic P21/n; a = 10.2225(5)Å, b = 14.0072(6)Å, c = 18.1154(8)Å, β = 93.896(1)°, V = 2587.9(2)Å3, Z = 4, Dcalc = 2.372 g cm-3; R1 = 0.0271 based on 3212 reflections.
