Synthesize the Cerium Nitrate variant of the Desired POM.


  • Added 1.6297 of Potassium precursor to 40 mL of DI water.
  • Added 0.899 g of Cerium Nitrate hexahydrate to 20 mL of DI water.
  • Combined the two solutions above and adjusted the PH to 3.5 using 1 M NaOH.
  • Refluxed for 2 hours at 80 °C
  • Cooled solution to room temperature
  • Left solution mixing overnight


  • Starting solutions were both clear and colorless but reaction solution (mixture) turned cloudy and white with a slight hint of yellow.
