    All in the family: Organophosphonate complexes of high-valent vanadium are common, but their VIII analogues are few and far between. Reaction of VCl3 precursors and phosphonates under solvothermal conditions leads to a family of corresponding vanadium (III)-based phosphonates, including the layered {VIII12(VIVO)} cluster shown in the picture (V green, P purple, O red, C black). Preliminary magnetic studies are also reported. (Figure Presented) © 2007 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
