|Redox reactions of Keggin-type polyoxometalates (POM), [PVxMo12 xO40](3+x) (x = 1, 2), have been studied for the ﬁrst time employing an array of potentiometric chemical sensors. Variations in the concentrations of vanadyl ions (VO2+) during the redox reactions of POMs were followed in the real-time. Diﬀerences in the vanadyl concentration proﬁles observed during re-oxidation of di- and mono-substituted POMs allow us to infer principally diﬀerent re-oxidation mechanisms for these compounds. At the beginning of the oxidation of [PVIV2Mo10O40]7 under air an instant release of VO2+ (ca. 7%) from the coordination sphere of POM to the outside solution was detected. VO2+ concentration decreased rapidly while oxidation proceeded indicating return of vanadyl back to the coordination sphere of [PVV2Mo10O40]5 . This ﬁnding indicates the participation of VO2+ outside Keggin structure in the re-oxidation mechanism of di-substituted POM. No release of VO2+ was detected during re-oxidation of [PVIVMo11O40]5 by air oxygen in the presence of laccase (this POM is not oxidisable by air at low temperature and atmospheric pressure). Biocatalysis of [PVIVMo11O40]5 oxidation may include activation of the molecular oxygen by the prosthetic group of laccase thus allowing the oxidation of V(IV) inside the Keggin structure of POM, i.e., without vanadyl release into the outside solution.
