New Major Revision of the Partition Coefficient Database
The Partition Coefficient (Kd) Database contains partition coefficient data for all types of rocks and minerals and for every element. As of this week, we have uploaded a significant number of new entries in the Kd Database. In addition, we have made corrections in the existing database, and made a first step at increasing, and clarifying the search parameters. This upgrade represents (an increase of over 35% in the size of the database) the first step in our new initiative to bring the database up-to-date, and to create a searchable database that will allow users to download full experimental datasets through this system. This compilation now represents information from over 300 papers.

Please take time to check out our existing system and report any problems to Roger Nielsen.
