3.9.9 Stability constants in aqueous solutions
Extensive compilations of stability constant data
Kn (or pKn = −log
Kn) of step-wise, complex ion equilibria,
involving ligand L and metal M, including (sometimes as well as)
hydrogen, of the form
are available and it is not realistic to make a restricted selection
here but instead to cite the compilations where values may be found.
