NIST Standard Reference Database 202 Web Thermo Tables (WTT) - Lite Edition

Rate our Products and Services

This web application provides access to a collection of critically evaluated thermodynamic property data for pure compounds with a primary focus on organics. These data were generated through dynamic data analysis, as implemented in the NIST ThermoData Engine software package. As of November, 2010, WTT - Lite Edition contains information on 150 commonly-used compounds and access to a total of 86407 evaluated experimental data points.

Various search options based on compound information (empirical formula, partial name, molecular weight) are provided. Data presentation features an interactive JavaScript-based Web interface with dynamic window-in-window navigation. Dynamic table generation based upon user input and interactive data plotting capabilities are also provided. Unlimited data retrieval and their local storage and use are permitted. For details regarding analytical methods and interacting with the interface, see the site user's guide.
