Data Footnotes

[1](1, 2)

Atomic Weights

Atomic weights and their uncertainties were retrieved mainly from ref. [iupac-weights]. For elements whose values were given as ranges the conventional atomic weights from Table 3 in ref. [Meija2016] were taken. For radioactive elements the standard approach was adopted where the weight is taken as the mass number of the most stable isotope. The data was obtained from CIAAW page on radioactive elements. In cases where two isotopes were specified the one with the smaller standard deviation was chosen. In case of Tc and Pm relative weights of their isotopes were used, for Tc isotope 98, and for Pm isotope 145 were taken from CIAAW.


Covalent Radius by Cordero et al.

In order to have a more homogeneous data for covalent radii taken from ref. [Cordero2008] the values for 3 different valences for C, also the low and high spin values for Mn, Fe Co, were respectively averaged.


Electron affinity

Electron affinities were taken from [haynes2014crc] for the elements for which the data was available. For He, Be, N, Ar and Xe affinities were taken from [Andersen2004] where they were specified for metastable ions and therefore the values are negative.


  • Electron affinity of niobium was taken from [Luo2016].
  • Electron affinity of cobalt was taken from [Chen2016a].
  • Electron affinity of lead was taken from [Chen2016].

Allen’s configuration energies

The values of configurational energies from refs. [Mann2000a] and [Mann2000] were taken as reported in eV without converting to Pauling units.


Mendeleev numbers

Mendeleev numbers were mostly taken from [Villars2004] but the range was extended to cover the whole periodic table following the prescription in the article of increasing the numbers going from top to bottom in each group and group by group from left to right in the periodic table.


Nuclear charge screening constants

The screening constants were calculated according to the following formula

\[\sigma_{n,l,m} = Z - n\cdot\zeta_{n,l,m}\]

where \(n\) is the principal quantum number, \(Z\) is the atomic number, \(\sigma_{n,l,m}\) is the screening constant, \(\zeta_{n,l,m}\) is the optimized exponent from [Clementi1963][Clementi1967].

For elements Nb, Mo, Ru, Rh, Pd and Ag the exponent values corresponding to the ground state electronic configuration were taken (entries with superscript a in Table II in [Clementi1967]).

For elements La, Pr, Nd and Pm two exponent were reported for 4f shell denoted 4f and 4f’ in [Clementi1967]. The value corresponding to 4f were used since according to the authors these are the dominant ones.


van der Waals radii according to Alvarez

The bulk of the radii data was taken from Ref. [Alvarez2013], but the radii for noble gasses were update according to the values in Ref. [Vogt2014].

[8](1, 2)

Isotope g-factors and quadrupole moments

The data regarding g-factors and electric quadrupole moments was parsed from easyspin webpage (accessed 25.01.2017) where additional notes are mentioned:

  • Typo for Rh-103: Moment is factor of 10 too large
  • 237Np, 239Pu, 243Am magnetic moment data from [haynes2014crc], section 11-2
  • In quadrupole moment data - a typo for Ac-227: sign should be +


Since electronegativity is useful concept rather than a physical observable, several scales of electronegativity exist and some of them are available in mendeleev. Depending on the definition of a particular scale the values are either stored directly or recomputed on demand with appropriate formulas. The following scales are stored:

Moreover there are electronegativity scales that can be computed from their respective definition and the atomic properties available in mendeleev:

For a short overview on electronegativity see this presentation.

All the examples shown below are for Silicon:

>>> from mendeleev import element
>>> Si = element('Si')


The electronegativity scale proposed by Allen in ref [Allen1989] can be defined as:

\[\chi_{A} = \frac{\sum_{x} n_{x}\varepsilon_{x}}{\sum_{x}n_{x}}\]

where: \(\varepsilon_{x}\) is the multiplet-averaged one-electron energy of the subshell \(x\) and \(n_{x}\) is the number of electrons in subshell \(x\) and the summation runs over the valence shell.

The values that are tabulated were obtained from refs. [Mann2000a] and [Mann2000].


>>> Si.en_allen
>>> Si.electronegativity('allen')

Allred and Rochow

The scale of Allred and Rochow [Allred1958] introduces the electronegativity as the electrostatic force exerted on the electron by the nuclear charge:

\[\chi_{AR} = \frac{e^{2}Z_{\text{eff}}}{r^{2}} \notag\]

where: \(Z_{\text{eff}}\) is the effective nuclear charge and \(r\) is the covalent radius.


>>> Si.electronegativity('allred-rochow')

Cottrell and Sutton

The scale proposed by Cottrell and Sutton [Cottrell1951] is derived from the equation:

\[\chi_{CS} = \sqrt{\frac{Z_{\text{eff}}}{r}}\]

where: \(Z_{\text{eff}}\) is the effective nuclear charge and \(r\) is the covalent radius.


>>> Si.electronegativity('cottrell-sutton')


Ghosh [Ghosh2005] presented a scale of electronegativity based on the absolute radii of atoms computed as

\[\chi_{GH} = a \cdot (1/R) + b\]

where: \(R\) is the absolute atomic radius and \(a\) and \(b\) are empirical parameters.


>>> Si.en_ghosh


Gordy’s scale [Gordy1946] is based on the potential that measures the work necessary to achieve the charge separation, according to:

\[\chi_{G} = \frac{eZ_{\text{eff}}}{r}\]

where: \(Z_{\text{eff}}\) is the effective nuclear charge and \(r\) is the covalent radius.


>>> Si.electronegativity('gordy')

Li and Xue

Li and Xue [Li2006][Li2009] proposed a scale that takes into account different valence states and coordination environment of atoms and is calculated according to the following formula:

\[\chi_{LX} = \frac{n^{*}\sqrt{I_{j}/Ry}}{r}\]

where: \(n^{*}\) is the effective principal quantum number, \(I_{j}\) is the j’th ionization energy in eV, \(Ry\) is the Rydberg constant in eV and \(r\) is either the crystal radius or ionic radius.


>>> Si.en_li_xue(charge=4)
{u'IV': 13.16033405547733, u'VI': 9.748395596649873}
>>> Si.electronegativity('li-xue', charge=4)
{u'IV': 13.16033405547733, u'VI': 9.748395596649873}

Martynov and Batsanov

Martynov and Batsanov [Batsanov1982] used the square root of the averaged valence ionization energy as a measure of electronegativity:

\[\chi_{MB} = \sqrt{\frac{1}{n_{v}}\sum^{n_{v}}_{k=1} I_{k}}\]

where: \(n_{v}\) is the number of valence electrons and \(I_{k}\) is the \(k\) th ionization potential.


>>> Si.en_martynov_batsanov()
>>> Si.electronegativity(scale='martynov-batsanov')


Mulliken scale [Mulliken1934] is defined as the arithmetic average of the ionization potential (\(IP\)) and the electron affinity (\(EA\)):

\[\chi_{M} = \frac{IP + EA}{2}\]


>>> Si.en_mulliken()
>>> Si.electronegativity('mulliken')


Nagle [Nagle1990] derived his scale from the atomic dipole polarizability:

\[\chi_{N} = \sqrt[3]{\frac{n}{\alpha}} \notag\]


>>> Si.electronegativity('nagle')


Pauling’s thermochemical scale was introduced in [Pauling1932] as a relative scale based on electronegativity differences:

\[\chi_{A} - \chi_{B} = \sqrt{E_{d}(AB) - \frac{1}{2}\left[E_{d}(AA) + E_{d}(BB)\right] }\]

where: \(E_{d}(XY)\) is the bond dissociation energy of a diatomic \(XY\). The values available in mendeleev are taken from ref. [haynes2014crc].


>>> Si.en_pauling
>>> Si.electronegativity('pauling')


Sanderson [Sanderson1951][Sanderson1952] established his scale of electronegativity based on the stability ratio:

\[\chi_{S} = \frac{\rho}{\rho_{\text{ng}}}\]

where: \(\rho\) is the average electron density \(\rho=\frac{Z}{4\pi r^{3}/3}\), and \(\rho_{\text{ng}}\) is the average electron density of a hypothetical noble gas atom with charge \(Z\).
