Abstract

Crystal engineering: The syntheses, crystal structures, Raman spectra, and thermal properties of Cs 10[Ge 9] 2[WO 4] and Cs 11[Ge 9] 2[VO 4] containing [Ge 9] 4- clusters and oxometallate anions [MO 4] x- (M=W und V) are reported. The picture shows a Raman spectrum obtained from single crystals of the double salt Cs 10[Ge 9] 2[WO 4] as well as the temperature-dependent Ge 9 cluster relocation in Cs 11[Ge 9] 2[VO 4].
