According to the work [10], cerium (Ce), praseodymium (Pr), and terbium (Tb) as well as europium (Eu), samarium (Sm) and ytterbium (Yb) are capable of changing valence, but only in the oxidizing environment, and preserve stability in the tetravalent state while their screening from water by organic stabilizers [11].
The most applicable are "light metals" (lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium and neodymium), less often--"medium" (samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium), even less--"heavy" (erbium, thulium, ytterbium, lutetium).
