Some basic characteristics of lanthanide-oxygen bonds in various trivalent lanthanide metal-organic complexes are quantitatively studied by the bond valence model. Some important relationships among the electronegativity, bond valence parameter, bond length and lanthanide coordination number in these complexes are generally found , which show that for each trivalent lanthanide cation all calculated parameters may well be correlated with its coordination number in their coordination complexes. Specifically,32 new data for the bond valence parameter are first calculated in this work.An approximate linear relationship between the Ln-O bond valence parameter and the coordination number of Ln~(3+) is obtained.The Ln-O bond length increases with the increase in the lanthanide coordination number.The difference of electronegative values decreases with the increase in the lanthanide coordination number.
