Composition counts! With a combination of inorganic synthesis as well as computational and mass spectrometry studies, the title cluster ions [VnP4−nO10].+ (n=2, 3; see picture) have been generated and their reactions with CH4, C2H4, and C2H6 investigated. In addition to thermal CH bond activation of methane, an unexpected reactivity towards the C2-hydrocarbons has been uncovered.
