Selected ATcT [1, 2] enthalpy of formation based on version 1.122e of the Thermochemical Network [3]

This version of ATcT results was generated from an expansion of version 1.122d [4] to include chemical species related to methyl acetate and methyl formate [5].

The aggregate state is given in parentheses following the formula, such as: g - gas-phase, cr - crystal, l - liquid, etc.

The listed uncertainties correspond to estimated 95% confidence limits, as customary in thermochemistry (see, for example, Ruscic [6]).
Note that an uncertainty of ± 0.000 kJ/mol indicates that the estimated uncertainty is < ± 0.0005 kJ/mol.
