 Microwave synthesis of polyoxoniobates and -tantalates circumvents the prolonged heating required by conventional hydrothermal methods, while providing comparable or greater yields. Microwave irradiation allows synthesis of polyoxoniobates from anhydrous niobium pentoxide, in lieu of niobic acid and sets the precedent for the discovery of new polyoxoniobates and -tantalates.
