Abstract : The work established that heteropoly blues are discrete anionic species, almost certainly isostructural with the oxidized anions. Heteropoly tungstates can be reduced in one-electron steps and the corresponding molybdates only in two-electron steps, a difference for which there is no immediately obvious explanation. Addition of electrons markedly affects the stability of the heteropoly structures, which become increasingly inert towards alkaline degradation upon reduction. (Author)
