This volume is the 11th in the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Chemical Thermodynamics series. It is based on a critical review of the thermodynamic properties of thorium, its solid compounds and aqueous complexes, initiated as part of the NEA Thermochemical Database Project Phase III (TDB III). This volume will be of particular interest to scientists carrying out performance assessments of deep geological disposal sites for radioactive waste. The results of this critical review carried out following the Guidelines of the NEA TDB Project have been documented in the present volume, which contains tables of selected values for formation and reaction thermodynamic properties and an extensive bibliography.
