Direct imaging of the structure, relaxation, and sterically constrained motion of encapsulated tungsten polyoxometalate lindqvist ions within carbon nanotubes.

Abstract:

The imaging properties and observation of the sterically regulated translational motion of discrete tungsten polyoxometalate Linqvist ions (i.e., [W(6)O(19)](2-)) within carbon nanotubes of specific internal diameter are reported. The translational motion of the nonspheroidal anion within the nanotube capillary is found to be impeded by its near-perfect accommodation to the internal van der Waals surface of the nanotube wall. Rotational motion of the anion about one remaining degree of freedo...
