covalent radii revisited (2008 values)



This is a set of covalent atomic radii (Ref. 1) deduced from crystallographic data for most of the elements with atomic numbers up to 96. These data show a well behaved periodic dependence that allowed interpolation for a few elements for which structural data is lacking, notably the noble gases. These values remove some inconsistencies in earlier covalent radii values. Additional graphs for these data will appear shortly.
