Title: Revisiting complexation thermodynamics of transplutonium elements up to einsteinium

Abstract

Literature casts einsteinium as a departure from earlier transplutonium actinides, with a decrease in stability constants with aminopolycarboxylate ligands. This work studies transplutonium chemistry – including Am, Bk, Cf, and Es – with aminopolycarboxylate ligands. Es complexation follows similar thermodynamic and structural trends established by the earlier actinides, consistent with first-principle calculations.
