Where can I find solubility data or Ksp values for a specific compound?


The following books, CD's, and Web sites contain indexes that allow you to find the solubility of a compound from its name or its chemical formula.

CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (CRC Press)
This quintessential handbook contains data for about 2500 inorganic compounds and 12000 organic compounds. Relevant physical properties listed include crystal structure, color, solubility, melting points, boiling points, heats of formation, heats of vaporization, heats of fusion, entropies, heat capacities, critical pressure and temperature, vapor pressure, and optical properties. (Book/CDROM; no Web access).

NIST Chemistry WebBook (National Institute of Standards and Technology)
Property and spectral data for elements, organic compounds, and small inorganic compounds can be retrieved by chemical formula, name, partial formula, CAS registry number, molecular weight, or by thermochemical properties. The database includes thermochemical data (enthalpies, entropies, heat capacities, ...) for several phases and for reactions and phase transitions, ion energetics data (ionization energies, electron affinities, ...) and spectroscopic information (IR, UV, visible, and mass spectra).

The Merck Index (Merck & Co.)
This 2300 page book contains over 10000 compound entries. It is now available on CD ROM. The entries include chemical formulas and structures, physical properties such as density and solubility, references on syntheses, and toxicity and therapeutic category.

Solubility products (Ksp) values for a few common ionic compounds can be found at the following Web sites.

Solubility Products of Slightly Soluble Salts (James Plambeck, University of Alberta)
An alphabetic table of K_sp_ values, valid for infinitely dilute solutions at 25°C.
