UV-VIS Spectral Atlas

The UV-VIS Spectral Atlas is a comprehensive collection of absorption cross sections for gaseous molecules and radicals, mainly for atmospheric research, compiled from measurements since the 1920s.


Henry's law constants

The database is a compilation of Henry's law constants for organic and inorganic species in water.



GeoReM is a Max Planck Institute database of reference materials of geological and environmental interest, such as rock powders, synthetic and natural glasses, and mineral, isotopic, biological, river and seawater reference materials.



The database GEOROC (Geochemistry of Rocks of the Oceans and Continents) was developed and maintained at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry until 2022. With the dissolution of our database group, it has been transferred to Göttingen Research Online:

The database is a comprehensive collection of published analyses of volcanic rocks and mantle xenoliths. It contains major and trace element concentrations, radiogenic and nonradiogenic isotope ratios as well as analytical ages for whole rocks, glasses, minerals and inclusions. Samples come from 11 different geological settings. Metadata include, among others, geographic location with latitude and longitude, rock class and rock type, alteration grade, analytical method, laboratory, reference materials and references.
