The magnetism of the polyoxometalate cluster {Mo(75)V(20)}, containing a sawtooth ring of 10 corner-sharing triangles located on the equator of the barrel-shaped molecule, has remained debatable since it is masked by contributions from impurities as well as temperature-independent paramagnetism. In this paper, we demonstrate the usefulness of electron spin resonance (ESR) measurements, since the temperature dependence of the ESR intensity can discriminate between impurity and molecular contributions. We determine the exchange parameters and therefore also the low-lying spectrum of {Mo(75)V(20)}
