Standard Reference Data

For over 50 years, «޲Ʊ has developed and distributed Standard Reference Data in Chemistry, Engineering, Fluids and Condensed Phases, Material Sciences, Mathematical and Computer Sciences and Physics..

New Database

Crystal Structure Database, for more information visit 

«޲Ʊ produces the Nation’s Standard Reference Data (SRD). These data are assessed by experts and are trustworthy such that people can use the data with confidence and base significant decisions on the data. «޲Ʊ provides 49 free SRD databases and 41 fee-based SRD databases. SRD must be compliant with rigorous critical evaluation criteria. Send questions to data@nist.gov or call 1(844) 374-0183 (Toll Free).
