Comment on “Equilibrium constants and rate constants for adsorbates: Two-dimensional (2D) ideal gas, 2D ideal lattice gas, and ideal hindered translator models”

The paper by Campbell et al. was recently brought to my attention. This comment is written to provide greater clarity to the community to prevent misconceptions regarding the entropies being

Chemical thermodynamics of uranium

I. Introduction. Background. Focus of the review. Review procedure and results. The NEA-TDB data base system. Presentation of the selected data. II. Standards and Conventions. Symbols, terminology

Specific Intermolecular Interactions and Energies of Amino Acids and Esters

The thermodynamic properties of important proteins amino acids have been studied a little in recent decades and the enthalpy and entropy values of the vaporization processes are still known for only


Thermodynamic data always refer to a selected standard state. The definition given by IUPAC [82LAF] is adopted in the NEA-TDB project as outlined in the TDB-5 guideline [99NEA]. According to this

Coefficients for calculating thermodynamic and transport properties of individual species

Libraries of thermodynamic data and transport properties are given for individual species in the form of least-squares coefficients. Values of C(sup 0)(sub p)(T), H(sup 0)(T), and S(sup 0)(T) are

Do the equilibrium constants have units? A discussion on how general chemistry textbooks calculate and report the equilibrium constants

An analysis of the literature concerning the dimensionality of equilibrium constants reveals that this topic manifests as a controversial issue. Based on this previous examination, this work studies

Structure-related melting and boiling points of inorganic compounds

The paper is aimed at rationalizing relationships between the structure of inorganic compounds in condensed phases and their melting and boiling points. It is documented that the main factor

NASA Glenn Coefficients for Calculating Thermodynamic Properties of Individual Species

This report documents the library of thermodynamic data used with the NASA Glenn computer program CEA (Chemical Equilibrium with Applications). This library, containing data for over 2000 solid,
