Electron exchange columns were developed by utilizing the redox properties of polyoxometalates (POMs) entrapped in silica matrices via the sol–gel route. The properties of the columns strongly depend on the composition of the precursors used to prepare the matrices. The columns exhibit good reversibility and are the first ‘reducing’ electron exchange columns ever prepared. They are also the first columns where both the matrix and the entrapped redox agent are inorganic compounds. This increases their stability. However, the redox properties of the entrapped POMs in the matrices are affected by the composition of the matrices.
