|Title:||Polyoxometalates as nanoscale building blocks for the formation of functional materials||Authors:||Zhang, Li Zhi||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Materials::Functional and smart materials||Issue Date:||2009||Source:||Zhang, L. Z. (2009). Polyoxometalates as nanoscale building blocks for the formation of functional materials. Master’s thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Polyoxometalates (POMs) are nano-sized metal-oxygen cluster species with a diverse compositional range and an enormous structural variety. They are powerful building blocks in the field of materials because of the following: (1) POMs can easily dissolve in water or organic solvent and hold the same polyoxoanion structure as that in the solid state; (2) POMs possess various charge, shape and bulk; (3) POMs can accept various numbers of electrons; (4) POMs are good ligands with multifunctional coordination sites.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/19310||DOI:||10.32657/10356/19310||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
