Abstract

Cerium(III) chloride reacted with carbonate in the solid state under a carbon dioxide atmosphere, to form cerium(IV) oxide, while europium(III) chloride, praseodymium(III) chloride and lanthanum(III) chloride underwent anion exchange and partial decomposition to give the dioxymonocarbonates initially. The latter three compounds took up carbon dioxide as the temperature increased, the amount varying in accordance with the basicity of the cations ( ="20" border="0" style="vertical-align:bottom" width="8" alt="View the MathML source" title="View the MathML source" src="http://origin-ars.els-cdn.com/content/image/1-s2.0-0040603185853703-si1.gif">
