A set of individual data sheets for gas phase chemical reactions and photochemistry of neutral species is presented. These data sheets give preferred values for reaction rate constants, photoabsorption cross sections and quantum yields with a brief statement discussing the basis for the preferred value. Recent experimental results are also given. The coverage of this initial set of data sheets issued in February 1980 corresponds to the approximately 400 reactions listed in NBS Special Publication 513, R. F. Hampson and D. Garvin, May 1978. For approximately one quarter of these reactions the data entry has been updated to include the 1979 recommendations of the NASA Panel for Data Evaluation and the CODATA Task Group on Chemical Kinetics. They are intended to provide the basic physical chemical data needed as input data for calculations modeling atmospheric chemistry. Revisions and additions for specific reactions will be published as new information becomes available.
