New Database: SpringerMaterials

A comprehensive collection of data on the physical and chemical properties of materials from all areas of physics, chemistry, engineering and materials science.

SpringerMaterials includes data on more than 3,000 properties of over 290,000 substances or material systems based on more than 1 million literature references.

The contents of the Landolt-Börnstein from 1961 and other databases are provided:

  • Pauling Files: Crystal Structures, Phase Diagrams and Physical Properties of Inorganic Compounds
  • Dortmund Data Bank of Software and Separation Technology: Data on thermophysical properties of pure substances and their mixtures
  • MSI Eureka: focus on phase diagrams of inorganic material systems
  • The Adsorption Database: lists data on over 1,500 physical adsorption isotherms
  • Polymer Thermodynamics Database: data on over 150 polymers and macromolecules
  • Corrosion Database: over 24,000 entries on corrosion data of over 1,000 different substances

The search is possible for search terms, elements and their compounds via a periodic table as well as a structure search. Hits can be filtered by data source, subject discipline and substance properties.
