An Unprecedented One-Dimensional Chain Constructed from β-Octamolybdate Clusters and Two Kinds of Silver Complex Fragments



An unprecedented one-dimensional chainlike compound with green fluorescent emission, (H3O)[Ag3(2,2′-bpy)2(phnz)2(β-Mo8O26)] (bpy = bipyridine, phnz = phenazine) has been synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. The compound is constructed from β-octamolybdate clusters linked through two kinds of silver-ligand subunits, [Ag(2,2′-bpy)(phnz)]+ and [Ag(phnz)]+. (© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
