This chapter consists of Subchapters 19–24. Topics covered in this chapter include synthesis of quaternary selenophosphates using molten salt fluxes; the hydrothermal synthesis of sulfosalts; open-framework solids of the vanadium oxide–phosphate system; sulfur-bridged incomplete cubane-type molybdenum and tungsten aqua ions; clusters with Mo3MS4 and W3NiS4 cores; and molybdenum clusters as aqua ions and related chalcogen-rich trinuclear clusters.
