A series of novel cluster compounds comprising molybdenum in a low valence state was synthesized by means of a disproportionation of the dimeric compound [Mo+42Cl4(OCH3)4(CH3OH)2] (1). The reaction of 1 with CH3OH leads to the disproportionation of Mo+4 yielding an unusual mixed-valence cluster [Mo+3.54Cl4O2(OCH3)6(CH3OH)4] (2). By exploring this synthetic approach further, tri-{[Mo3Cl3(OCH3)7(CH3OH)3] (3)}, tetra-{[Mo4Cl4(OCH3)10(CH3OH)2] (4), [Mo4Cl3O(OCH3)9(CH3OH)3] (5), [Mo4Cl2(OCH3)12(CH3OH)2] (6)}, and hexanuclear {[Mo6Cl4O6(OCH3)10(CH3OH)2] (7)} molybdenum alkoxides were synthesized by the reaction of 1 with methanol and stoichiometric amounts of magnesium methoxide, thus providing a general facile access to the polynuclear methoxide complexes of a low-valence molybdenum. Due to the feasibility to adopt multiple oxidation states in a reversible manner and the documented competence of molybdenum alkoxide compounds to catalyze the reduction of inert molecules, including N2, the synthesized compounds were expected to function as catalysts of small molecule substrates reduction/hydrogenation. Accordingly, the reduction of acetylene (C2H2) to an ethylene (C2H4) and ethane (C2H6) mixture, in methanol (with water additives) serving as a reaction medium and a proton donor, and using sodium or europium amalgams as reducing agents, was performed in the presence of 2. Preliminary kinetic studies evidently point to a catalytic function of molybdenum species derived from 2, thus establishing the observed reactivity as a rare example of non-precious metal-catalyzed acetylene hydrogenation, providing, in addition, a convenient model for further mechanistic studies.

Bimetallic Ni-Mo alkoxide was synthesized and exploited as the single-source precursor for the solution-processed deposition of the mixed-oxide layers on different conducting surfaces. Upon potential cycling in 1 M NaOH, these composites convert, in situ, into highly porous NiOx/NiOOH catalysts characterized by the high electrocatalytic activity for water oxidation under both basic (pH 13.6) and near neutral (pH 9.2) conditions.

The effects of electrochemical oxidation and surfactant adsorption on behavior of vertically oriented carbon-nanowall (CNW)-based electrodes are studied. Electrochemical oxidation is carried out by the electrode polarization in aqueous solutions at high anodic potentials corresponding to water electrolysis, whereas the modification of surface by surfactants is accomplished by the adsorption of molecules characterized by the cage-like structure. Using the methods of cyclic voltammetry and impedancemetry, it is shown that a substantial increase in the capacitance of CNW-based electrodes is observed in both cases (30-50-fold and 3-5-fold, respectively). The as-grown and modified electrodes are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. A substantial increase in a number of oxygen-containing functional groups is observed on the CNW surface after the electrode polarization at high anodic potentials. The kinetics of redox reactions on the CNW film surface is studied by comparing the behavior of systems [Ru(NH3)6](2+/3+), [Fe(CN)6](4-/3-), Fe(2+/3+), and VO3(-)/VO(2+). It is demonstrated that oxidation of nanowalls makes the electron transfer in the redox reaction VO3(-)/VO(2+) and the redox system Fe(2+/3+) considerably easier due to coordination of discharging ions of these systems with the functional groups; however, no such effect is observed for the redox-systems [Fe(CN)6](3-/4-) and [Ru(NH3)6](2+/3+).
