Electronic absorption spectra of aqueous solutions of the clusters K6[Mo6Q8(CN)6] and K7[Mo6Q8(CN)6] (Q = S, Se) were studied. The electronic structures of the [Mo6Q8(CN)6]6− and [Mo6Q8(CN)6]7− cluster anions were calculated by the DFT method. The absorption spectra observed agree with the results of calculation in the framework of the electron-dipole transition model.
