Theoretical Inorganic Chemistry


The solubilities of freshly precipitated and aged hydroxides of 21 metals have been calculated. The initial data set used for calculations comprised the stability constants and solubility products of hydroxides. The compositions and pHs of saturated solutions and the solubilities of hydroxides are dictated by the polarizing ability of charged metal atoms. The results of solubility calculations are in satisfactory agreement with experimental values.
