Mix and match: The pentagonal [Mo6O21]n− polyoxomolybdate building block assembles with other sources of Mo, V, and Sb ions to form an orthorhombic Mo-V-Sb oxide. The first single-crystal X-ray analysis of an orthorhombic Mo–V-based oxide, a promising catalyst for light alkane selective oxidation known as the “M1 phase”, revealed the structure of the compound.
