Guide to thermodynamic data

Stephen R. Heller, Thermo Data on the Web, Today's Chemist at Work 13(4), 17-8, 20 (April 2004). Remarking the shift from volumes of print databooks to searchable online databases, Heller identifies several currently-available physical and chemical property data sources, including the free NIST Chemistry WebBook and several proprietary web databases from scientific societies and vendors in the U.S. and abroad. He also points to a resource page of more than 100 sources of thermodynamic data and property information maintained by a lab the University of Illinois Chicago.
