      NIST Standard Reference Subscription Database 3 - Professional Edition
      Version 2-2012-1-Pro

      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 [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. Some critically evaluated data from the historical TRC Thermodynamic Tables archive [7, 8] are included, also. As of May 2012, the Professional Edition contains information on 28432 compounds and total of 531486 evaluated data points. The properties covered by both versions (32 total) are described in Properties and Implemented Models.

      Developed by Kenneth Kroenlein, Chris D. Muzny, Andrei F. Kazakov, Vladimir Diky, Robert D. Chirico, Joseph W. Magee, Ilmutdin Abdulagatov and Michael Frenkel.
