A database for thermodynamic properties of group-III nitrides and relevant species involved into growth of these materials is developed in this paper. Standard formation enthalpies of materials and coefficients of polynomial approximations of the reduced Gibbs free energies are collected in the tables. They allow one to determine the Gibbs free energy, enthalpy, entropy and specific heat of a species as a function of temperature. The database covers solid and gaseous group-III nitrides, elemental species, gaseous metal-organic compounds, chlorides and hydrides of group-III elements, nitrogen containing precursors and organic byproducts of various chemical reactions proceeding during growth processes. Thermodynamic properties of adducts which can be formed in the vapor phase while mixing ammonia and metal-organic compounds are presented in the database as well. Much of the data given in this paper is presented for the first time. All the data are checked for self-consistency and therefore can be used for thermodynamic calculations.
