Herein we report two structurally intriguing Co(II)-substituted polyoxometalates, a (Co9[P2W15]3) and (Co14[P2W15]4) (compounds 1 and 2) that are formed from the same building blocks under subtly different conditions. Compound 1 displays a structure previously predicted but never before realised, whilst compound 2 is the first Co-containing Dawson-based single-molecule magnet and has a unique cruciform structure.
