Some Remarks after Construction of the Thermodynamic Database MALT

On the basis of the development of the thermodynamic database MALT, several issues related with the thermodynamic database and related systems which utilize thermodynamic data stored in database have been discussed. Focuses were placed on evaluation methods of loosely connected thermochemical data and its combination with well generalized software to calculate chemical equilibria or to construct the generalized chemical potential diagrams. Particular emphases were placed on appropriateness of applying the generalized software together with a set of data where some critical data are missing. Considerations were made on how thermodynamic database should be combined with such knowhows of utilizing thermodynamic data far from the complete coverage of data.
