A new synthesis route for preparing Dawson-type polyoxometalate (POM) based inorganic-organic hybrid materials is presented. Two new heteropolytungstate-based dimeric and oligomeric Pt(ii) acetylide inorganic-organic hybrid compounds (2PtOD and PPtOD) were prepared by Hagihara's dehydrohalogenating coupling of a terminal diacetylene POM hybrid containing diphosphoryl functionality and an appropriate platinum(ii) halide precursor. This method provides a rigid covalent linkage between the POM and the organometallic Pt(ii) acetylide moiety. The redox potential of the polyanion can be tuned by grafting the organic and organometallic groups on it. The photoelectric properties of hybrid LB films derived from these inorganic-organic composites were studied.
