Dr. Stefan G. Minasian, Dr. Jamin L. Krinsky and Prof. John Arnold Evaluating f-Element Bonding from Structure and Thermodynamics Chemistry - A European Journal 17
Assessing bonding criteria: Correlating physical data, such as bond length and vibrational frequency, to electronic structure has proven difficult in systems containing f elements. A new approach to the interpretation of a bond length is proposed in consideration of the bond's energetic properties (see figure). The discussion also suggests that assignment of merit to a theoretical method based on agreement with a solid-state bond length would be, at best, a dubious process.
