Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The observed magnetic properties of the heavier transition metals permit them to have larger metallic valences than their iron-group congeners. With 0.72 metallic orbital, as found for the iron-group metals, the maximum metallic valence and minimum interatomic distance would occur for 8.28 transargononic electrons. The curves of observed interatomic distances for the close-packed metals of the second and third long periods have minima at this point, supporting the assignment of high valences to these metals. Values of the single-bond radii corresponding to these valences are calculated.
