FIZ CHEMIE Berlin Improves Database Infotherm for the Planning of Chemical Plants26.11.2004 - (idw) Fachinformationszentrum Chemie GmbH
FIZ CHEMIE Berlin has improved the ease of use, the search functions and the results display of the thermophysical properties database Infotherm on the web / Search criteria can now be specified in unlimited combinations
Berlin, November 2004 - With Infotherm, Fachinformationszentrum Chemie GmbH (FIZ CHEMIE Berlin) now offers one of the largest internet-based databases world-wide that contains thermophysical properties. This high-quality source of information covers approximately 24,000 chemical mixtures and approximately 6,600 pure compounds and provides information to e.g. planning offices and chemical engineering companies who want 24/7 access to up-to-date materials data without the need for installed software and the corresponding data management.
The online database, programmed in XML, has been noticeably upgraded in recent months. Infotherm now offers more and improved functions for professional searches of chemical data on the internet. For example, the Boolean operators "and" and "or" can now be used to make logical combinations of search criteria to retrieve the property data of a particular mixture. The search terms can be linked in all combinations and in unlimited numbers. This function can be used to specify information requirements very accurately and to narrow down a search. Further improvements of Infotherm assist in the processing of the search results and their integration into company networks. For example, diagrams can now be downloaded as PDF files. The diagrams are shown directly on the display screen without the need to install the usual Java applet. Furthermore, it can be displayed as file that can be stored separately. This requires a SVG plugin that can be easily downloaded from the internet. The mouse cursor can be used to display interpolated data between the measured values.
Infotherm will be presented at the exhibition "Online Information & Content Management Europe" in London (30.11. to 2.12. 2004) at Stand 226.
Retrievable data in Infotherm includes PVT properties, phase equilibria, transport and surface properties, caloric properties and solid-liquid equilibria. The information provided in the database has been compiled and evaluated by a team of highly qualified specialists using international publications in scientific journals, handbooks, data collections as well as sources that are difficult to access, such as measurement protocols produced by the chemical industry or internal reports from research institutions. The data are checked in several quality control cycles before they are entered into the database.
Much of the retrievable data is free of charge, some is subject to charge. Basic data on pure compounds, in particular, can be accessed free of charge. There is a fee for certain data on the behaviour of pure materials and on mixtures. FIZ CHEMIE Berlin offers two price models for the use of Infotherm. The database can be accessed by the so-called pay-per-view method (costs per displayed hit) or with an annual subscription, which is the more cost-effective solution if the database is used regularly.
