Bulk and surface chemistry database (DB) are necessary to compute plasma parameters using plasma simulators. As the high quality of the DB is closely related to the accuracy enhancement of simulations, we attempted to gather reliable data from previously published articles. However, previous systems could not accommodate various types of information such as electron collision cross sections, rate coefficients of heavy particle reactions, sticking coefficients on the surfaces, and thermodynamic data. Therefore, we developed a new version of the DB system to provide plasma data for researchers in related fields; this new DB system is designed to retrieve data such as electron collision cross sections, rate coefficient, and thermodynamics data. About 35,000 collision cross sections and 74,000 rate coefficients for 90 chemical species and thermodynamic data for 55 chemicals are provided in the numerical and graphical forms in this DB system.
