Literature citation


This database is the result of a long-term project at NIST (formerly the National Bureau of Standards, NBS) to collect and make available kinetic data on gas-phase reactions.  The objective was initially on reactions important in combustion.  It was then expanded to include atmospheric reactions and presently includes essentially all reported gas-phase kinetics studies involving elementary reactions.

The previous version of this database was:  NIST Standard Reference Database 17.
