The Chemical Thermodynamics Series comprises review reports dealing with data selection for particular elements or groups of elements and state-of-the-art reports focusing on the application of chemical thermodynamics to particular systems of interest in radioactive waste management.
The NEA Thermochemical Database (TDB) project has so far published twelve review reports and one state-of-the-art report. These review books are indispensable when using the selected TDB data, as they contain detailed information about which data sources were used in the selection procedure, how the selection was done, and information about areas where more experimental data are needed. The use of the selected data without these publications is not recommended.
The state-of-the-art report published as Volume 10 of the TDB series concerns the chemical thermodynamics of solid solutions.
Please note that the TDB-2 guidelines for the extrapolation of redox potentials to zero ionic strength were updated in 2013 to align with the IUPAC definition for the standard state (Green Book 2nd edition, Chap. 2.11.iv, page 53): “The standard state for a solute in a liquid or solid solution is referenced to the ideal dilute behaviour of the solute. It is the (hypothetical) state of solute B at the standard molality m◦, standard pressure p◦ and exhibiting infinitely dilute solution behaviour”.
More information can be found at: www.oecd-nea.org/dbtdb/guidelines/tdb2.pdf.
All books published between 2001-2008 follow the old TDB-2 guidelines.

The Use of Thermodynamic Databases in Performance Assessment, Workshop Proceedings, Barcelona, Spain, 2001
Performance assessment of repository concepts for the geological disposal of long-lived radioactive waste relies on the availability of thermodynamic data for many radionuclides and other elements under a wide range of physico-chemical conditions. This publication contains the full papers and summary discussion records of a workshop attended by scientists active in the field of chemical thermodynamics and experts in repository performance assessment who use the thermochemical databases for their evaluations. During the workshop, participants discussed current experimental and theoretical standpoints, new data requirements and the peculiarities of their application in performance assessment. This publication is available online.
From Thermodynamics to the Safety Case, Symposium Proceedings, Karlsruhe, Germany, 2010
The objective of the symposium “From Thermodynamics to the Safety Case”, organised jointly by the NEA TDB and Sorption Projects, was to present and discuss the principal outcomes of these two projects with interested communities (academic institutions, technical support organisations, waste management organisations, regulatory bodies). Emphasis was placed on illustrating and discussing key challenges when applying thermodynamic models and underlying databases to problems of interest for the waste management community as a whole. These proceedings contain extended abstracts of the presentations delivered by the speakers and summary records of the discussions, as well as the main conclusions and recommendations for the future work under the TDB and Sorption Projects. This publication is available online.
