Gas Phase Heat Capacity (Shomate Equation)

Cp° = A + B*t + C*t2 + D*t3 + E/t2
H° − H°298.15= A*t + B*t2/2 + C*t3/3 + D*t4/4 − E/t + F − H
S° = A*ln(t) + B*t + C*t2/2 + D*t3/3 − E/(2*t2) + G
    Cp = heat capacity (cal/mol*K)
    H° = standard enthalpy (kcal/mol)
    S° = standard entropy (cal/mol*K)
    t = temperature (K) / 1000.

No spectra have been conclusively assigned to SiC. The following constants are from ab initio calculations Lutz and Ryan, 1974:
a 1Sigma+ (6628) (1018)   (0.695)     (1.70)  
* 3Sigma- (5597) (606)   (0.556)     (1.90)  
* 3Pii 0 1 (983)   (0.606)     (1.82) 1  

Notes

1 Lovas, 1974 assumes a 1Sigma ground state and estimates re = 1.65 from an extrapolation to SiC of the shortening of Si-O, Si-N single bonds in the corresponding diatomic molecules.
