Discrepancies with results of calculation [ Della Vedova C.O., 1991] amount to 1.4 J/mol*K for S(300 K) and 3.4 J/mol*K for Cp(900 K). S(298.15 K) value calculated by high accuracy ab initio method [ East A.L.L., 1997] is in close agreement with selected one. Please also see Chao J., 1980, Chao J., 1986.; GT
