    • Abstract


      An inorganic-organic hybrid polyoxoniobate compound [Cu(en)2]3[Cu(en)2(H2O)]1.5 [K0.5Nb24O72H14.5]2.25H2O (1) was synthesized by reaction of K7HNb6O$_{19}.13$H2O, Cu(CH3COOH)$_2.$H2O and en (ethylenediamine) in aqueous solution and characterized by IR, ESR spectroscopy and singlecrystal X-ray diffraction method. Structure analysis indicates that compound 1 consists of a new type polyoxoniobate anion [K0.5Nb24O72H14.5]9-, three [Cu(en)2]2+, one point five [Cu(en)2(H2O)]2+, and two point two five crystal water molecules. The structure contains N-H$\cdots$O hydrogen bonds between the coordinated ethylenediamine and the polyniobate-anion. The whole molecule possesses the $C_{3v}$ symmetry.
