The preference for incorporation of molybdenum over tungsten into specific sites of a family of yttrium-arsenotungstates with amino acid ligands prompted exploration of the incorporation of other metals, affording three new vanadium-containing (V/W and V/Mo/W) analogues: K2(GlyH)10[As4(V2W2)W44Y4O160(Gly)8(H2O)12]·11Gly (1), (MBAH)9(L-NleH)3[As4(V2W2)W44Y4O160(L-Nle)8(H2O)12] (2), and (MBAH)9(L-NleH)3[As4(V2W2)Mo2W42Y4O160(L-Nle)8(H2O)12] (3) (Gly=glycine and L-Nle=l-norleucine, MBAH=4-methylbenzylammonium). These hybrid polyoxometalates all possess a tetrametallic oxo-bridged {VIV2WVI2} central core surrounded by an amino acid-ligated cyclic metal-oxo framework. X-Ray photoelectron, UV-visi..
