I'm looking for enthalpy of neutralization literature values for inorganic weak acids. NIST, PubChem, etc. don't list them. Is there somewhere else I should look?

  • $\begingroup$ I suspect this data might be somewhere in JANAF thermochemical tables. $\endgroup$ – andselisk Jan 7 at 19:05

    $\begingroup$ Try to discover the molar enthalpies of formation of 1) the ion H+ (or H3O+), 2) the ion OH-, and 3) the liquid water. Take this last value, subtract first the enthalpy of formation of H+ and then the enthalpy of formation of OH-. And here you are. This gives you the molar enthalpiy of neutralization acid + base in solution. OK ? $\endgroup$ – Maurice Jan 7 at 20:35
