Educational Version

The Educational Version is designed to be used for lectures and exercises and to give teachers and students nearly all the possibilities of the full Dortmund Data Bank (DDB) and the integrated software package (DDBSP). To achieve this for a small fraction of the price of the commercial version, some of the very complex and advanced features were left out and the experimental data banks are limited to 30 common components and their mixtures.

Nevertheless, this makes more than 50,000 real world data sets from the open literature and private communications available for examination, regression and graphical representation.

Using a large number of group contribution methods (like Joback, Ambrose, Benson, UNIFAC) or COSMO-RS (Ol) for pure and mixture properties (like VLE or LLE), data can easily be estimated from molecular structure. Just draw the molecule using our convenient structure editor ARTIST and click the property you need.

The package comes with extended documentation and course material (Powerpoint® slides).


Use this product to

  • incorporate modern methods and data into teaching
  • have your students examine real world experimental data
  • let them get acquainted to experimental scattering and reliability of data
  • get hands on experience with a large variety of estimation methods
  • teach them to use the most sophisticated tool for physical property estimation, which is also used by many companies worldwide
  • let them explore thermodynamic relationships between different types of data (e. g. pure component vapor pressures and enthalpy of vaporization)
  • let them explore the performance of thermodynamic models for the simultaneous description of different types of data (VLE, hE, γ,…)
  • Search, regress, estimate, visualize, … physical property data to be used in design projects
