A family of lanthanide silicates adopts an oxyapatite-like structure with structural formula Ln9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 (Ln 4 La, Sm, Nd, Gd, ∎ = vacancy). The enthalpies of solution, DHS, for these materials and their corresponding binary oxides were determined by high-temperature oxide melt solution calorimetry using molten 2PbO·B2O3 at 1078 K. These data were used to complete thermodynamic cycles to calculate enthalpies of formation from the oxides, ΔHs f-oxides (kJ/mol): La9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −776.3 ± 17.9, Nd9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −760.4 ± 31.9, Sm9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −590.3 ± 18.6, and Gd9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −446.9 ± 21.9. Reference data were used to calculate the standard enthalpies of formation from the elements, ΔH0 f (kJ/mol): La9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −14611.0 ± 19.4, Nd9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −14661.5 ± 32.2, Sm9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −14561.7 ± 20.8, and Gd9.33∎0.67(SiO4)6O2 = −14402.7 ± 28.2. The formation enthalpies become more endothermic as the ionic radius of the lanthanide ion decreases.
