Following the former version of the database on the thermal death of microorganisms, ThermoKill Database R9100, we constructed an expanded version, ThermoKill Database R8100. This database includes the thermal death data together with as many as 70 items of experimental conditions described in research papers which appeared in 23 academic journals published worldwide from 1981 to 2000. The novel version contains 7, 454 records as data sets, 12, 261 <I>D</I> values, and 2, 038 <I>z</I> values. Some statistical data based on the data input in the database are presented. The significance of this novel database in practical use is then discussed.
