Digitizing “The NBS Tables of Chemical Thermodynamic Properties: Selected Values for Inorganic and C1 and C2 Organic Substances in SI Units”



Janiel J. Reed


The NBS Tables of Chemical Thermodynamic Properties is a collection of thermodynamic properties, published in book form, consisting of 103 tables with 14 330 critically evaluated species. The tables were originally published as a series of NBS Technical Notes. As a result of this work, the data is now available in a more accessible spreadsheet format. Enthalpy of formation, ΔfH°, Gibbs energy of formation, ΔfG°, entropy, S°, heat capacity at constant pressure, Cp°, all at 298.15 K, and the enthalpy difference, [H°(298) - H°(0)] are provided where known. Within this collection of data, there are no values given for transuranic elements, Np to Lr (Tables 77-87).
