The oxomolybdenum-arsonate system was investigated under hydrothermal conditions in the presence of charge-compensating copper(II)-organonitrogen complex cations as secondary building blocks. A series of materials of the Mo/O/As/Cu/ligand family has been prepared and structurally characterized. The architectures of the products reflect the identity of the arsonate component and the organonitrogen ligand, as well as the reaction conditions. The structural versatility of this emerging class of compounds is manifested by the one-dimensional structures of [{Cu(o-phen)(H 2O) 2} 2Mo 6O 18(O 3AsOH) 2] (1), [{Cu(terpy)} 2Mo 4O 13H(AsO 4) 2]·2H 2O (2·2H 2O), [{Cu(2,2′-bpy)(H 2O)} 2Mo 6O 18(O 3AsC 6H 5) 2]· 2H 2O (4·2H 2O), and [{Cu(o-phen)(H 2O)}2{Mo 6O 18(O 3AsC 6H 5) 2}]·4H 2O (5·4H 2O), by the two-dimensional materials [{Cu 2(tpyprz)(H 2O) 2}Mo 6O 18(O 3AsOH) 2]·2H 2O (3·2H 2O), [{Cu(terpy)} 2Mo 6O 18(O 3AsC 6H 5) 2]· H 2O (6·H 2O), and [{Cu 2(tpyprz)}Mo 6O 18(O 3AsC 6H 5) 2]·2H 2O (7·2H 2O), and the molecular clusters [{Cu(2,2′bpy) 2} 2Mo 12O 34(O 3AsC 6H 5) 4]·2.35H 2O (8·2.35H 2O) and [Cu(o-phen)(H 2O) 3][Cu(o-phen) 2Mo 12O 34 (O 3AsC 6H 5) 4]·3H 2O (9·3H 2O).
