An analisys of the basic TN has indicated that several key thermochemical values need improvement. One of them is the enthalpy of formation of carbon atom in gas phase, equiv. to the vaporization enthalpy of graphite. The quantity is used regularly by ab initio theoretical approaches to convert computed atomization energies to enthalpies of formation. The currently accepted value (716.68 +- 0.45 kJ/mol), recommended by $CODATA,^{a}$ is primarily based on $D_{0}$(CO) that appears to be somewhat too low. A revised value for the enthalpy of formation of C (g), with a significantly improved uncertainty, has been now obtained by combining state-of-the-art ab initio computations of $D_{0}$(CO), a re-analysis of previous spectroscopic data on CO, and other existing thermochemical data via an ATcT treatment of the underlying TN.
