A new chromium (III) substituted Dawson 2-molybdo-15-tungsto- 2-phosphate K7[Cr(H2O)P2Mo2W15O61]·17H2O was synthesized by reaction of Cr(III) chloride with monolacunary Dawson molybdo-tungsto-diphosphates [P2Mo2W15O61]10- in aqueous solution. The complex has been characterized using spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques. The FT-IR spectroscopic data indicate that the polyanion overall symmetry is restored after the coordination of Cr(III). Coordination of chromium (III) is further supported by the 31P-NMR, EPR and UV-Vis electronic absorption spectroscopy results. Cyclic voltammograms of the chromium (III) complex exhibit three pairs of oxidation/reduction waves with negative ε0`values. These waves were assigned to two molybdenum centered single electron redox processes and one tungsten-centered two electrons process. A positive shift of these waves when going from Dawson monolacunary complex to its Cr(III) complex. A modified Dawson structure was inferred from the results for the new chromium (III) complex, in which the chromium and molybdenum atoms are located to the same cap of the anion.
