Energy levels, with classifications and uncertainties, have been compiled for the spectra of the neutral atom and all positive ions of sodium. Wavelengths with classifications, intensities, and transition probabilities are also tabulated. In addition, ground states and ionization energies are listed. Where available, the hyperfine structure constants and the percentages of the leading components of the energy levels are included. For all ionization stages of sodium, at least some experimental data are available; however, for those for which only a few transitions have been measured, theoretical calculations or values obtained by isoelectronic fitting are reported. Similarly, theoretical or isoelectronically determined ionization energies are given when they are thought to be more accurate than the available experimental data would produce.
IUPAC-NIST Solubility Data Series. 87. Rare Earth Metal Chlorides in Water and Aqueous Systems. Part 1. Scandium Group (Sc, Y, La)37(2008); http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.2956740View Description Hide Description
This volume presents solubility data for rare earth metal chlorides in water and in ternary and quaternary aqueous systems. The material is divided into three parts: scandium group (Sc, Y, La), light lanthanide (Ce-Eu), and heavy lanthanide (Gd-Lu) chlorides; this part covers the scandium group. Compilations of all available experimental data are introduced for each rare earth metal chloride with a corresponding critical evaluation. Every such evaluation contains a tabulated collection of all solubility results in water, a scheme of the water-rich part of the equilibrium (Y, La, Ln) phase diagram, solubility equation(s), a selection of suggested solubility data, and a discussion of the multicomponent systems. Because the ternary and quaternary systems were almost never studied more than once, no critical evaluations or systematic comparisons of such data were possible. Only simple chlorides (no complexes) are treated as the input substances in this work. The literature (including a thorough coverage of papers in Chinese and Russian) has been covered through the middle of 2007.

Experimental thermochemical properties of benzene, toluene, and 63 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, published within the period 1878–2008 (over 350 references), are reported. Available experimental data for the enthalpies of combustion used to calculate enthalpies of formation in the condensed state, combined with sublimation,vaporization, and fusion enthalpies, are critically evaluated. Whenever possible, recommended values for these thermochemical properties and for the enthalpies of formation in the gas state at are provided.
Physical-Chemical Property Data for Dibenzo--dioxin (DD), Dibenzofuran (DF), and Chlorinated DD/Fs: A Critical Review and Recommended Values37(2008); http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.3005673View Description Hide Description
Polychlorinated dibenzo--dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) are of global concern due to their persistence, their tendency to bioaccumulate, and their extremely high toxicity. The fate of the PCDD/Fs in the environment is largely determined by their physical-chemical properties, such as solubility in water (, ), solubility in octanol (, ), and vapor pressure (, Pa). It is not unusual that the range of reported values for a given property varies over several orders of magnitude, especially for the highly chlorinated congeners, and consequently, it is a challenge to select physical-chemical property data from the literature for use in chemical fate and risk assessments. In the current study, physical-chemical property data [, , , Henry’s law constant , partitioning coefficients between octanol-water and octanol-air ] for 15 DDs and 17 DFs at are compiled from the literature and evaluated to select literature derived values that are then adjusted to conform to thermodynamic constraints using a least-squares adjustment procedure. We also present an analysis of available data on internal energies of phase change (, , , , , ) at , which describe the temperature dependence of the partitioning properties. The final adjusted values (FAVs) derived from this study are recommended as physical-chemical property data for PCDD/Fs for use in environmental fate modeling. The FAVs for internal energies of phase change can be used as a first approximation for estimating properties at temperatures other than .
