Abstract  

The position of scandium and yttrium within lanthanides in respect to the enthalpies of solution of anhydrous rare earth halides has been discussed. It has been indicated that although the respective shift of Sc(III) as a quasi-heavy lanthanide is less pronounced than for Y(III), the overall covalency within the trivalent ions of the scandium group, Ln(III) and An(III) included, is the most pronounced for Sc(III) due to participation of the empty orbitals in bonding: Sc(III)>An(III)>Ln(III)> Y(III). The irregularity of this trend is produced by the superimposed participation of the 5f (An(III)) and, to a lesser extent, of the 4f (Ln(III)) orbitals in bonding. The crucial factor of a maximum difference between the product and substrate coordination number (CN) of the central ion for covalency, separation factor and isotope effect in chemical exchange is emphasized.
