Periodicity in atomic properties

Which has maximum polarising power?


By Fajan's rule, smaller the size of cation, larger the size of anion, larger the charge on the ion. d,f-electrons present then, larger the polarising power and larger the distortion hence, larger the covalent nature of compounds. Si" with largest charge and smallest size has maximum polarising power.
