NIST Standard Reference Database 171


ThermoLit - NIST Literature Report Builder for Thermophysical and Thermochemical Property Measurements
Developed by K. Kroenlein, V. Diky, C.D. Muzny, R.D. Chirico, J.W. Magee and M. Frenkel

This web application provides free and open access to literature information contained in the NIST SOURCE Data Archive [Int. J. Thermophys., 2012, 33 p. 22-33.] and provides an easy-to-use tool for generation of a NIST Literature Report in PDF format. The tool is intended to aid researchers and reviewers in determining relevant literature sources for a given thermophysical property measurement; however, it is not intended to replace the comprehensive literature review required by all journals, and no guarantee is made regarding completeness of the information provided. The primary focus of this service is molecular organic compounds. Some common inorganic and organometallic compounds are included, but, in general, polymers, radicals, ions, salt and acid solutions, metals, metal oxides, and inter-metallics are not considered.
