A new data model for storage of experimental thermophysical and thermochemical property data was developed and implemented for the NIST/TRC SOURCE data archival system. Substantial improvements in data quality, as well as system usability and extendability, are achieved. Substance identification based on chemical structures was implemented. Availability of stored chemical structures will facilitate the use of property estimation methods to supplement the experimental information.
