Database of Periodic Table Elements in Text Format
« on: July 02, 2018, 03:34:37 PM »
I am looking to find a website that has a database for elements in the periodic table. Specifically, I need the data in the form of a file in the format of .json or similar.

I found NIST (https://www.nist.gov/pml/productsservices/physical-reference-data), but it doesn't include a lot of data on discovery date, boiling point, melting point, thermal conductivity, atomic orbitals, etc.

I looked at the Royal Society of Chemistry and each element had data I was looking for, but I couldn't find the data as a file. It appeared it was only on the website. (ex link: http://www.rsc.org/periodic-table/element/1)

I also looked under ChemSpider, but the data was not in any file, it is just on the web page.

I am specifically looking for something like this: https://physics.nist.gov/cgi-bin/Compositions/stand_alone.pl?ele=&ascii=ascii&isotype=all, or a file that contains data on each element in text format. Data including discovery date, boiling point, melting point, etc. Preferably, I would like the data to be in a .json, .csv, .xml, or some file format that contains data. Is there some data source that I am completely missing that people in the Chemistry field use for this purpose? Thanks for the help, Joseph.

Plenty of similar apps (if you will browse Free Ads subforum they are advertised now and again). I am not aware of any site where the data can be downloaded as a file, but scripting the harvesting shouldn't be difficult.
ChemBuddy chemical calculators - stoichiometry, pH, concentration, buffer preparation, titrations.info, pH-meter.info
