The formation and transformation of crystalline chalcogenido metalates in ionic liquids as solvents is discussed as a new synthetic approach for the generation of novel materials. A comparison to conventional solvothermal reactions, classical high-temperature syntheses and chemical solution based approaches in common is discussed.

Keywords: chalcogenides; clusters; ionothermal reactions; reactions in solution; solvothermal reactions
