The available data on gas-phase basicities and proton affinities of approximately 1700 molecular, radical and atomic neutral species are evaluated and compiled. Tables of the data are sorted (1) according to empirical formula and (2) according to evaluated gas basicity.

Critically evaluated data on heats of formation of positive and negative ions in the gas phase are compiled and presented in these tables (GIANT tables), along with auxiliary information on ionization energies, proton affinities, electron affinities and acidities, as well as relevant thermochemistry of related neutral species. The literature coverage is through the middle of 1986. The criteria used in carrying out evaluations of data are described, and a short discussion is presented of special concerns for the thermochemistry of charged species.
