CeF3 is a highly ionic substance so it would have a lot of free Ce in solution. But Lawrencium only has a +3 oxidation state, which shouldn't interact with Ce. I doubt that CeLa is a possible substance.

Note that:
La is Lanthanum (not Lawrencium)
Ce is Cerium
These are neighbors in the periodic table.

Ce can form CeF4
La can form LaF2

However, I have no idea if they would react in the experiment you describe.
As TopsQuark and Oz opine, my gut feeling is that nothing would happen.

Thanks for the correction. I felt something was wrong late last night so I looked them up.

Time was that I could correctly identify most of the Periodic Table. I guess I've been away from Chemistry for too long. 8|
