Four highly reduced molybdenum oxides LnMo(8)O(14) (Ln = La, Ce, Nd and Sm) containing bicapped Mo-8 clusters were synthesized via solid state reaction followed by spark plasma sintering. The thermoelectric properties were investigated, and NdMo8O14 exhibits the best performance with the maximum power factor of 177 mu W/mK(2) at 1000K. The highest ZT of NdMo8O14 was determined to be around 0.1 at 1000 K.
