o DIPPR Project 801 Extensive database of rigorously evaluated pure component data on 1973 industrially important chemical compounds from the Design Institute for Physical Properties (2009). Reference state is 1 bar, 298.15 K. Density, viscosity, vapor pressure, heat capacity, heat of vaporization, surface tension, second virial coefficient, critical properties, acentric factor, hazard and safety properties -- many versus temperature.
o Knovel Solvents Over 145 properties for over 1600 different solvents including general, physical, health, safety, environmental, thermodynamic, transport, etc.
o Yaws’ Handbook of Thermodynamic and Physical Properties Thermodynamic and transport properties versus temperature of 5000 organic chemical compounds, C1 to C70. Tables are interactive, most with equations for easy calculation and plotting.
o Handbook of Antoine Coefficients for Vapor Pressure Built-in equation plotter giving P or log(P) versus T with choice of units.
o Yaws' Transport Properties of Chemicals and Hydrocarbons Diffusion coefficients, thermal conductivities, viscosities of pure components and mixtures. The diffusion coefficients of gases are for low pressure, and appear to be at either 1 atm or 1 bar (DP is constant for gases at low pressure).
o Water-steam All properties, in tables, graphs, interactive tables, and calculator.
o Handbook of Inorganic Chemicals Chemical reactions of over 2000 of the most common industrial chemicals.
· Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (CRC) Use * before chemical name or formula, e.g. *NaCl or *ClNa for NaCl. See page 14-19 in the 87th edition for the composition of dry air at sea level, and changes versus height.
· DECHEMA databases Thermophysical properties and safety parameters of pure components & mixtures. Search and then pay cost of particular data retrieved. (Professor Taylor has most of the series in his laboratory.)
o Chemistry WebBook (Antoine constants, heats of formation, etc.):
