Compilations of stress data vary in detail depending on the scale and purpose
of the compilation. On the largest scale, a global compilation, data may come
from several types of stress measurements and

In general, I have followed these suggestions in the present research, although not
always within the identical sequence.

Solubility DataCompilations for the Practicing Chemist
by Heinz Gamsjäger, John W. Lorimer, and David G. Shaw
Phenomena related to the solubility of solids, liquids, and gases with one another are of interest to scientists, technologists, and medical practitioners in a wide array of disciplines. Solubility data are, for example, employed to determine thermodynamic quantities, and to predict the safety of radioactive waste repositories as well as to assess the effectiveness of a given pharmacological treatment. Clearly, the end users of solubility
The IUPAC-NIST Solubility Data Series (SDS) is an ongoing project that provides comprehensive reviews of published data for solubilities of gases, liquids, and solids in liquids or solids. Data are compiled in a uniform format, evaluated, and, where data from independent sources agree sufficiently, recommended values are proposed. This paper is a guide to the SDS and is intended for the benefit of both those who use the SDS as a source of critically evaluated solubility data and who prepare compilations and evaluations for future volumes. A major portion of this paper presents terminology and nomenclature currently recommended by IUPAC and other international bodies and relates these to obsolete forms that appear in the older solubility literature. In addition, this paper presents a detailed guide to the criteria and procedures used in data compilation, evaluation, and presentation and considers special features of solubility in gas + liquid, liquid + liquid, and solid + liquid systems. In the past, much of this information was included in introductory sections of individual volumes of the SDS. However, to eliminate repetitive publication, this information has been collected, updated, and expanded for separate publication here.
A compilation of available experimental data for acetone-water mixtures with the reciprocal salt system Na+, K+ || Cl−, SO42− is presented. Significant inconsistencies among experimental data are pointed out. New freezing point measurements are reported for the binary acetone-water system at 12 different compositions. UNIQUAC parameters are determined on the basis of the available data from literature. Modeling results are presented. Vapor-liquid, liquid-liquid, and solid-liquid equilibria together with thermal properties are reproduced well by the model using only 14 parameters. The major drawback of the model is that the calculated liquid-liquid equilibrium regions of systems with KCl and NaCl are larger than the experimentally determined regions. The model is valid in the temperature range from −16 to 100 °C.

resent one of the largest collections of chemical property data ever produced and are the
result of work of scientists throughout the world. In 1998, IUPAC signed an agreement with
the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to continue the series by replac-
ing the monographs by articles in the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data. Five
datacompilations have already been published in the Journal, and many more are under way.
Recently, IUPAC and NIST have concluded another agreement about computerizing all

data lays the foundation for implementation of the new concept of dynamic data evaluation
formulated at NIST/TRC, which requires the development of large electronic databases ca-
pable of storing essentially all “raw” experimental data known to date with detailed descrip-
tions of relevant metadata and uncertainties. The combination of these databases with expert
software designed primarily to generate recommended data based on available “raw” exper-
imental data and their uncertainties leads to the possibility of producing datacompilations
