Two one-dimensional chain complexes with building blocks comprised of polyoxotungstate-ligated lanthanoid centers have been synthesized from the adaptable precursor [As2W19O67(H 2O)]14- through combined disassembly and reassembly processes. Careful control of the reaction and crystallization conditions affords compounds formulated as H3K7Na6[Nd 3As4W41O141OH(H2O) 10]-60H2O (1) and KNa[Dy4As2W 22O76(H2O)19(C2H 5NO2)2]·20.5H2O (2). © 2010 American Chemical Society.
