Solution Kinetics Database on the Web. .

A Solution Kinetics Database, jointly created by NIST and the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory, has been made available on the Internet in a format similar to that utilized by the popular NIST Kinetics Database, which covers gas-phase reactions. The Solution Kinetics Database, which can be found at, contains over 23 000 rate constants, primarily for free radical reactions. More than 11 000 unique species in more than 150 solvents or mixtures of solvents are included. The data have been abstracted from nearly 4000 literature sources. This database includes reactions of many compounds of industrial and biochemical interest, such as antioxidants, vitamins, dyes, photosensitizers, radiosensitizers, radioprotectors, amino acids, and enzymes; and provides kinetic information on many unstable species of physiological and atmospheric importance. The database is linked to the NIST Chemistry WebBook wherever possible, making additional chemical and physical property data on the chemical species available at the click of a mouse.
