A glimpse behind the scenes! The reactivities of the vanadium-phosphorus oxide cluster ions [VxP4−xO10].+ (x=0, 2–4) towards hydrocarbons have been investigated by means of density functional theory. More complex oxidation processes, such as oxygen-atom transfer to, or oxidative dehydrogenation of the hydrocarbons (see figure) require the presence of a vanadium atom to bring about the 2e− reduction of the cationic clusters.
