In science:
They also formulated a theory of monovalent and multivalent counterions in suspensions of polarizable colloids or nanoparticles which in some respects complements our work where the mono or polyvalent counterions themselves are treated as polarizable.

"polyvalence Same as multivalence."

Probably that means that the word exists in English but it is not much used by Americans.

other examples:

"The exceptional firm R was also of this type after dilution of its highly planned collective polyvalence."

With 18 possible shields, the 27░ AIR series offers exceptional polyvalence

The success of the First 44.7 is assured thanks to its exceptional polyvalence, an aggressive line and an everlasting price/quality relationship.
