Mixed-Valence Dodecanuclear Polyoxovanadate Clusters

The magnetic exchange interactions in the mixed - valence dodecanuclear cluster compounds (NHEt3)4[V12As8O40(H2O)]H2O, Na4[V12As8O40(H2O)]23H2O and Na4[V12As8O40(H2O)]16.5H2O were investigated by the spectroscopic method of inelastic neutron scattering using cold neutrons.

This work was carried out in the group of Prof. Hans Ulrich Güdel.
