A great deal of solution chemistry can be summarized in a table of standard electrode potentials of the elements in the solvent of interest. In this work, standard electrode potentials and temperature coefficients in water at 298.15 K, based primarily on the ‘‘NBS Tables of Chemical Thermodynamic Properties,’’ are given for nearly 1700 half-reactions at pH=0.000 and pH=13.996. The data allow the calculation of the thermodynamic changes and equilibrium constants associated with ∼1.4 million complete cell reactions over the normal temperature range of liquid water. Estimated values are clearly distinguished from experimental values, and half-reactions involving doubtful chemical species are duly noted. General and specific methods of estimation of thermodynamic quantities are summarized.
