Metal tungstates have attracted much attention due to their important applications as photoluminescent materials [1-3], microwave applications [4, 5], sensors [6], optical devices [7], photocatalysts [8], supercapacitors [9, 10] and others [11, 12].
(1) Low-temperature sulfur incrustations from Ebeko volcano contain appreciable amounts of trace elements stored in rock particles, metal sulfides (e.g., argentite ([Ag.sub.2]S), covellite (CuS), cadmoindite (Cd[In.sub.2][S.sub.4]), famatinite ([Cu.sub.3]Sb[S.sub.4])), chlorides (cotunnite (Pb[Cl.sub.2])), sulfates (anhydrite (CaS[O.sub.4]), alunite [(K[Al.sub.3](S[O.sub.4]).sub.2][(OH).sub.6]), anglesite (PbS[O.sub.4]), barite (BaS[O.sub.4])), and tungstates (scheelite (CaW[O.sub.4])).

Although several compounds have been reported to act as good corrosion inhibitors for steel in neutral media (e.g., molybdates, tungstates, polyphosphate, and phosphonate) [1-5], the use of carboxylic acid derivatives has been attractive since they are environmentally friendly and can be derived from fatty acids extracted from vegetable oils [6, 7].
Nitrates, molybdates, and tungstates also have been used.
The crystalline mineral matter typically comprised of oxides-hydroxides, sulphides-sulphosalts, sulphates, silicates, carbonates, phosphates, vanadates, tungstates, chlorides, native elements, and other mineral classes (Ural, 2007; Vassilev and Vassileva, 1996).
[24] have carried out detailed study on thermal expansion of some other molybdates and tungstates such as [Gd.sub.2][Mo.sub.3][O.sub.12] and [Gd.sub.2][W.sub.3][O.sub.12].

Nevertheless, the so-called 'one-component' materials - such as manganese antiperovskites, zirconium vanadates, and hafnium tungstates - exhibiting negligible thermal expansion offer a promising route towards achieving this goal.
The oxidizing agents can be peroxides, superoxides, permanganates, tungstates, or molybdates.
