Excellent deoxygenation of ketones and aldehydes is achieved with Keggin-type polyoxometalates in the presence of hydrogen (see Equation (1) for an example). The mixed addenda phosphovanadomolybdate [PV2Mo10O4]5- was found to be the best catalyst. X-ray diffraction and IR studies suggest that the polyoxometalates are structurally stable under the strongly reducing conditions.
