Does anyone know of a good reference for specific heats? It seems that it is no longer popular to publish values. I am especially interested in the specific heats of polymers.


1 Answer 1

  • The Polymer Handbook (4th Edition) has heat capacity data (Chapter VI, section “Heat Capacities of High Polymers”).
  • The ATHAS Data Bank
  • A possible ancestor to the above: “The ATHAS database on heat capacities of polymers”, Pure & App. Chem., 67, 1019-1026 (1945).
