Finding Data 101



Finding reliable scientific data is not always easy. This tutorial is intended to give you a quick demonstration of looking up common physical and thermodynamic data for small organic molecules using reliable, authoritative sources.

The "Top 3" starting points for any chemical data search are all listed on the Chemistry Library's home page:

crc handbook of chemistry and physics

NIST Chemistry WebBook

DIPPR

To get the most from this tutorial, open a separate browser window, bring up the Chemistry Library page, and connect to each tool in question so you can try it out for yourself as you go along. The CRC Handbook and DIPPR are licensed and restricted to UT-Austin students and faculty/staff. The NIST WebBook is open to all.
