CIM Bulletin1950
L.M. PIDGEON
IF THE oxides of the metals are listed in decreasing order of the magnitude of their heats of formation, the list appearing in Table I will be formed. It will be apparent at once that this is essentially the well-known electrochemical series (Table II). The metals at the bottom of the list exhibit great stability and are attacked only by the most violent of chemical reagents.
