The Physical Properties Database (PHYSPROP) contains chemical structures, names, and physical properties for over 41,000 chemicals. Physical properties are collected from a wide variety of sources, and include experimental, extrapolated, and estimated values for melting point, boiling point, water solubility, octanol-water partition coefficient, vapor pressure, pKa, Henry's Law Constant, and OH rate constant in the atmosphere.
This file has been actively built by SRC over the last two decades. It started as a database of physical properties for chemicals being evaluated by SRC for the Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB), available from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). Since then, it has also been used as a repository for physical and chemical property data that were used to develop estimation methods for the EPI Suite™ software (owned by the U.S. EPA; for more information and free download go to http://www.epa.gov/oppt/exposure/pubs/episuitedl.htm). Initially, carefully evaluated data was entered and checked by senior scientists as described for CHEMFATE. Additional quality control was performed by comparing measured values to estimated values from structure/property relationships (as a possible means of identifying outlying observations); and/or by comparing the values for one property (i.e., Henry’s Law Constant) to estimates derived from other properties (i.e., the ratio of vapor pressure and water solubility in the case of Henry’s Law Constant—discussed in the preceding reference). This file is continually updated.
