【Reaserch Result】Scientists serendipitously discover rare cluster compound

Posted:2022/06/20

Scientists at the Graduate School of Engineering at Kyoto University have discovered a novel cluster compound that could prove useful as a catalyst. Compounds, called polyoxometalates, contain a large metal-oxide cluster carry a negative charge. They are found everywhere, from anti-viral medicines to rechargeable batteries and flash memory devices.
