Abstract
Hydrothermal reaction of VOPO4-2H2O and [Co(en)3]Cl3 in sealed borosilicate glass tube yielded a vanadium (V) borophosphate cluster based solid, [Co(en)3][enH2]V3BP3O19}.4.5H2O (VBPO)Crystal data: monoclinic space group, P21/e Z=4 a=12.0709(7),b=14.226](8)and c=18.1104(9)AB=95.067 (1)A=3097.8(3)A Single crystal X-ray diffraction studies revealed that discrete [V3BP3O19 clusters are linked to counter cations and water molecules through a complex hydrogen bonding network.
