Thermochemical and Physical Properties of Element 112
ABSTRACT Every atom counts: New data for the adsorption chromatographic behavior of single atoms of element 112 confirm a metallic character involved in their interaction with a gold surface, similar to the lighter homologues Zn, Cd, and Hg. The elemental volatility of element 112 is much higher than that of lighter homologues of Group 12 of the periodic table, as empirically deduced from the experimental results.

ABSTRACT: The highest accessible formal oxidation states of the d-block elements are scrutinized, both with respect to the available experimental evidence and quantum-chemical predictions. The focus is on fluoride, oxide, and oxyfluoride systems. The field has evolved significantly over the past 15 years due to the availability of quantitative computational predictions of thermochemical stabilities, and of spectroscopical parameters of a number of key molecules. The demands on the computational methodology used, as well as the experimental boundary conditions needed are reviewed, and reasons for the observed trends in oxidation states throughout the 3d, 4d, 5d, and 6d series are discussed.Coordination Chemistry Reviews 03/2009; 253(5):606-624.
