      Formation constants (logKMALMA) of mixed ligand complexes[Ln(III).A.L.], where Ln(III) = La3+, Ce3+, Pr3+, Nd3+, Sm3+, Eu3+, Gd3+, Tb3+ or Dy3+; A=NTA, HEDTA or EDTA and L = resorcinol (res), orcinol (orc) or phloroglucinol (phl) have been determined pH-metrically using the Irving-Rossotti approach at 25°C and at an ionic strength,I = 0·2(mole dm−3, NaClO4). The logKMALMA values lie in the sequence: (i) NTA > HEDTA > EDTA and (ii) orc > res > phl with respect to primary (A) and secondary (L) ligands, respectively.

      Periodicity has been observed in the formation constant values, which lie in the sequence La3+ < Ce3+ < Pr3+ < Nd3+ < Sm3+ < Eu3+ > Gd3+ < Tb3+ < Dy3+ with respect to Ln(III) ions. The evaluated extrastabilization and nephelauxetic ratio values lend support to inter-electronic repulsion theory; these values and the magnitude of the tetrad effect lie in the sequencef7>f3f4f10f11. Hydration numbers (HN) of Ln(III) ions have been calculated; tetrad effect is present in HN.
