Polyoxomolybdates(POMs) have potential applications in photoelectrochemistry, magnetism, catalysis(photo- and electronic), materials science and biomedicine due to the diversity of the chemistry, structure and electron. In recent years, layer-by-layer self-assembly method has been widely used to build ultra thin films from POMs, which extends the application range of POMs. This work reviews the research progress of functional polyoxometalate-based composite materials(including plate multilayer films, microspheres and magnetic vesicles) via the layer-by-layer self-assembly. The applications in electrocatalysis, photocatalysis, electrochromism gas sensor and magnetic properties are also introduced. The research perspectives are presented.


Key words: layer-by-layer self-assembly, polyoxometalates, composite materials, catalysis
