Many bond properties are related to bond valence. In some cases, specifically tetrahedral coordination, bond angles are correlated with bond lengths, hence with bond valences. Thermal vibrations of ions, and the force constants and thermal expansion of bonds, can be calculated from bond valences. Because bonds expand with temperature, the bond valence parameters which describe the correlation between bond valence and bond length are subject to a correction for temperature if the valence sum rule is to be obeyed.

Keywords:   bond properties, bond angle, bond length, force constants, thermal vibration, thermal expansion, bond valence parameters
