Nobly born: The bowl-shaped noble metalate [PdII7VV6O24(OH)2]6−(Pd7V6) comprises seven square-planar PdIIO4 units as well as four tetrahedral VVO4 and two square-pyramidal VVO5 addenda units (see picture). The solution stability of Pd7V6 has been demonstrated by 51V NMR spectroscopy, ESI mass spectrometry, and DFT calculations.
