Abstract

The solubilities of lanthanum carbonate La2(CO3)3·8H2O in solutions S0([H+]=H mol kg-1, [Na+]=(I-H) mol kg-1, [ClO4-]=I mol kg-1) at various fixed partial pressures of CO2 have been investigated at 25.0 °C. The hydrogen ion molality and the total molality of La(III) ion in equilibrium with the solid phase were determined by e.m.f. and analytical methods, respectively. The stoichiometric solubility constants {Mathematical expression} according to the overall reaction {Mathematical expression} have the values 10.23, 10.37, 10.58, 10.77 and 11.06 for I=0.1, 0.25, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 mol kg-1 (Na)ClO4, respectively. The extrapolation to infinite dilution using the Pitzer equations resulted in a "thermodynamic" solubility constant: {Mathematical expression}. This in turn led to the Gibbs energy of lanthanite, La2(CO3)3·8H2O, formation: {Mathematical expression}.
