The knowledge of the surface free energiesγ i o of solid chemical elements is necessary in many practically important subjects. The description of the quantitiesγ i o (more correctly termed as the surface free enthalpies) is a part of a new “complex calculation of surface segregation” (CCSS) method, proposed by the authors. Here the applicability of a “standard table” of the values ofγ i o , obtained in that part of CCSS is shown by comparing the calculated values ofγ i o with several recently published experimental results.
