Brief Description of the Collaboratory :


This database provides thermochemical coefficients and kinetic mechanistic data that are relevant to the high-temperature processes used in materials synthesis. We define "high temperature" as anything above 298 K! Such processes include chemical vapor deposition (CVD), chemical vapor infiltration (CVI), catalysis, combustion, and aerosol processing. The database includes: 1) thermodynamic data (heats of formation, enthalpies, entropies, and heat capacities) for gas-phase species and 2) kinetic mechanisms composed of elementary gas-phase and surface reactions that describe various CVD processes. Thermodynamic data are presented in the form of polynomial coefficients for the heat capacity (Cp), enthalpy (H) and entropy (S) as a function of temperature. These fits can be used with the CHEMKIN software.
