I'm wondering how chromium (as a metal or as a salt) behaves in a concentrated carbonate solution. Will it form any, one or several carbonate specie(s)? Will the metal solubilize? How does it affect chromium salts and their behavior? Does it matter which carbonate salt the solution is made from (Ca/Mg/Na/K/Mn/Fe/Zn/Cu carbonate)?
The question is a bit broad but it only reflects my ignorance of its behavior. I'd welcome more understanding of any of the aforementioned aspects of its behavior.
In some ways I think my question amounts to finding out how it will behave at high pH but I'd rather be asking specifically in case I might be missing some aspect of what is going on.
Mo is a transition metal and seems to form an insoluble carbonate. But I haven't been able to find evidence showing chromium (and Tungsten for that matter) do so as well (and I don't know if extrapolations can be that easily made amongst the behaviour of elements of the same group), nor have I find any numerical data as to their solubility.
