2020/12/01: 2000th Surface site and protolysis dataset reached

RES³T database is increasing. Today, we have entered the 2000th dataset on site density and protolysis reactions.

2000th pK2 value

2020/10/21: 7000th Surface complexation reactions constant reached

RES³T database is growing continually. Today, we have entered the 7000th surface complexation reactions constant.
We wish to thank all scientists for their work on sorption chemistry, and of course you - our users - for any feedback and suggestions for RES³T improvements. We will continue our work on the RES³T database.

7000th logK value

2020/01/08: New user interface

We are constantly further developing the RES³T database. Always linstening to our users, the primary user interface has been revised to make it more intuitive and therefore easier to use.
Every feedback is gratefully acknowledged!

2019/11/18: 6000th Surface complexation reactions constant reached

RES³T database is growing continually. Today, we have entered the 6000th surface complexation reactions constant.
We wish to thank all scientists for their work on sorption chemistry, and of course you - our users - for any feedback and suggestions for RES³T improvements. We will continue our work on the RES³T database.

6000th logK value

2019/07/08: 3000th Literature reference

RES³T database is growing continually. Today, we have processed the 3000th literature reference on the topic of surface complexation modelling.
The RES³T team thanks all scientists working on the sorption of contaminants on mineral surfaces for their contributions. We will continue our work on the RES³T database.

3000th reference

2018/04/20: Visualisation of database content

A visualization of the database content was implemented, which displays the stored data as a combination of minerals and sorting ligands. In addition, the number of reaction constants available is displayed and the search results are linked directly.


2016/06/08: Extension of Sample characterization information

A number of changes have been made to the detailed Sample characterization page. So empty database fields are no longer displayed and the relevant data is more condensed.
Also the analysis method used by the authors to characterize the mineral phase are displayed now.

2016/05/30: 5000th Surface complexation reactions constant reached

RES³T database is growing continually. Today, we have entered the 5000th surface complexation reactions constant.
We will continue our work on the RES³T database.

5000th logK value

2015/12/16: Extension of the literature data query

A number of small changes have been made to the detailed result pages. So empty database fields are no longer displayed and the relevant data is more condensed.


2015/11/11: Extension of the literature data query

Beside some minor changes on the website in general, the literature data query has been extended. Beside part of the author name or the (mnemonic) literature reference code, the query field can also contain parts of the references title now. Thus it is easier to look for a specific reference.


2015/01/06: Anti SPAM Captcha included into the contact form

Because of the increased spam filled into our contact form, the RES³T team has decided to integrate a captcha in the contact form. We are sorry that this step has become necessary but we want to stay in contact with our users and not shutting the contact form.

2014/07/29: Calculation of pK1/2 at zero ionic strength

A conversion procedure has been integrated into RES³T to calculate the protolysis constants (pK1/2) values at zero ionic strength using the Davies equation (Davies 1938). This allows entering the pK1/2 values directly into the parameter files from SCM capable speciation programs.

pK Conversion

For more information see the pK1/2 conversion to zero ionic strength help page.


2014/05/27: Link resolver for hyperlinks

All references of the type "WWW link / URL", leading to another website, are automatically linked now to give direct access to the reference.

Link resolver

Please note: Hyperlinks are not static web objects. The RES³T team tries to keep all links up to date. However, if a link no longer leads to the destination website, please let us know.


2013/09/25: Calculation of LogK at zero ionic strength

A conversion procedure has been integrated into RES³T to calculate the LogK value at zero ionic strength using the Davies equation (Davies 1938). This allows entering the LogK values directly into the parameter files from SCM capable speciation programs.

LogK Conversion

For more information see the LogK conversion to zero ionic strength help page.


2013/07/17: Extension of the bibliographic data

RES³T now provides the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and the abstracts of the stored references if available. The hyperlink in the Bibliographic Data page resolves the DOI number and directly guides to the original reference.
