All acceptable variants of hydrates are mentioned in Template:Hydrates.
All acceptable variants of solvents are mentioned in Template:Solvents.
All acceptable variants of toxicity are mentioned in Property:Compound/Toxicity.

Mandatory part of the page are name, formula, color and info sections. Other parameters can be omitted if their value is not known or looks doubtfully.

You can use allotropes (black, red, graphite, etc) or crystal lattice (α-tetrahydrate, etc) variants names and other notes instead of hydrates while setting parameters mentioned at infobox. They will show in brackets.
If compound has no hydrates or other crystal lattices, you should use anhydrous hydrate name in system and solubility sections. However, for melt, boil, decompose, refraction and stability sections you can omit hydrate name. For example, these values are correct ones:

melt: 0
boil: 100

In the shape section you should use templates from Category:Shapes. Information of how to interact with form can be found on any shapes`s page.

You should use Category:Methods of synthesis templates for Synthesis section, with setting parameters values as they specified at templates pages.
Similarly, for the Sources section you should use templates from Category:Sources.

You can set solubility approximately by words or exactly as numbers.
Solubility characteristics as word description says that solubility belongs to one of range specified in Property:Solubility/Soluble. It is the least precise data.

If solubility was set as a number:

  • It should have no prefix if it is reference data or it was get by multiple measurements
  • It should have prefix if data is once measured value or reasonably accurate approximation
  • It should have prefix ~ if data was calculated or is inaccurate
  • The basic solubility unit is grams of compound per 100 grams of solvent (at constant temperature in degrees Celsius and atmospheric pressure)
  • Also you can set solubility as a mass of compound per mass of solution, in %
  • Any value will show in the table in grams, but when you hover the cell with mouse it will show the percentage value
  • Also when you hover the temperature cell it will show temperature at other scales (Kelvin, Fahrenheit, etc.)
  • If more than 3 points was set - data will automatically interpolated between these points (with ~ prefix)
  • Chart which will duplicate the information from the table will add automatically. Information of how to interact with the chart can be found on Template: Graph-use

It is recommended to make experiments in your own personal space, to avoid damaging of pages using this template.
