We report a new approach for the synthesis of heterohexa‐ and heterodecametalates via the use of non‐aqueous, microwave‐assisted reaction conditions. The two novel molybdovanadates have been isolated and characterized in the solid and solution states using single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction, FT‐IR, UV/Vis, multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, and ESI‐MS. The relative stabilities of the possible structural isomers were probed using dispersion‐corrected DFT calculations for both polyoxometalate systems.
