Single crystal X‐ray structures of four noncovalent complexes between POMs and HEWL have been determined, and the influence of the type of substituted metal on the mode of POM binding to a protein was investigated. All crystal structures exhibited a high degree of similarity, suggesting that the interaction is largely independent on the nature of substituted metal within the same polyoxometalate (POM) archetype. The main driving force for the formation of the noncovalent complex is electrostatic attraction between POM and HEWL surface regions. Stabilization is further provided by direct and water mediated hydrogen bonding between terminal oxygen atoms of the POM framework and flexible HEWL residues.</jats:p>
