Abstract:

A new class of compounds that detect reducing chemical warfare agents mustard, HD, and VX as well as some pollutants and toxic industrial chemicals by reduction of esterified polyoxometalate POM units are described. The esterified POM units also catalyze the aerobic air only decontamination of these same toxic compounds. The esterified POM units are synthons for supramolecular structures that consequently also detect and catalytically decontaminate.
