I don't know about fluxing power, but if it's ion size you're after, that's a simple function of the number of protons & neutrons in the nucleus, as well as the number of electrons in the various orbitals.

A periodic table of elements is all that's necessary

In essence, down is larger in any column, so it's Lithium (Li), Sodium (Na), Potassium (K), Rubidium (Rb), Cesium (Cs), Francium (Fr). Also, sideways is also larger for a given row. (i.e. Magnesium (Mg) is bigger than Sodium (Na).

Does this gibe with fluxing power (i.e. Sodium larger than lithium, etc)?
