Electrochemical properties of Mo2WO2(O2CCH3)6(H2O)3(CF3SO3)2 and W3O2(O2CCH3)6(H2O)3(CF3SO3)2 clusters in 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate (EMIBF4) ionic liquid was investigated. Cyclic voltammograms using a platinum electrode indicated that deposition of metal had occurred. Constant potential electrolysis of Mo2WO2(O2CCH3)6(H2O)3(CF3SO3)2 at -1.9 V using a platinum foil electrode was performed. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) confirmed that deposition had occurred.
