This reference book is now revised and updated in its second edition. Almost 2400 pure substances, including 100 organic compounds, are considered in this compilation of thermochemical data. The scope of thermochemical functions presented is broad, ranging from heat capacity, entropy and Gibbs energy function to enthalpy of formation and equilibrium constant of formation. The values of these functions are tabulated at intervals of 100 K, starting at room temperature and going up to 5000 K. It combines all the well-established tabulations (eg. JANAF) with a broad range of more recent publications. A preliminary text introduces thermodynamics and describes the fundamental relations of chemical thermodynamics. The contents and structure of the tables are explained, and numerous examples illustrate their use. Metallurgical, ceramic and chemical engineers will appreciate these unusually comprehensive tables, which treat substances, relevant to the practitioner and scientists. The compilation also considers substances previously untreated in similar tables. A data base of the tables combined with powerful software for thermodynamic calculations is also available from the publishers.
