A polyoxotetradecamolybdate cluster [Mo14O38(OAc) 6]2-, which has a lacunary core of the Wells-Dawson structure, is isolated by the reduction of [Mo6O19] 2-. The Mo14 core is comprised of a mixed valence of [MoV4MoVI10], exhibiting multi-step reversible redox processes that experience both oxidation and reduction.
