Alloy, alloy: A pure cobalt-based Keggin network linked by W-O-Co interactions is “alloyed” with a pure manganese-based Keggin network, linked by W-O-Mn interactions. These isostructural alloys are solid solutions of the Co and Mn nets. The alloys are prepared by the stoichiometric mixing of the components of each discrete network, leading to a series of single-crystalline mixed transition-metal frameworks with novel redox properties.
