Chromium(III)-Oxyanion Systems

  • An Erratum to this article was published on 20 January 1962


CERTAIN hexaquochromium(III) oxyanion compounds (in particular, the phosphate, arsenate and sulphate) have shown marked similarities in their behaviour on thermal degradation and in solutions with their corresponding oxyacids. This behaviour can best be explained on the basis of olation-condensation reactions which are believed to occur both in the solid state and in solution.
