A comprehensive review of the vapor to liquid homogeneous nucleation experiment literature from 1968 to 1992 is presented. The review identifies and presents in tabular format experimental nucleation data dealing specifically with: (1) critical supersaturation measurements in both unary and binary systems; (2) nucleation rate measurements in both unary and binary systems; (3) photoinduced nucleation experiments; and, (4) ion‐induced nucleation experiments. The data tables identify the substance under investigation; the experimental method used in each investigation; the background gas and, when available, the pressure range of the background gas used in each investigation; a brief summary of the key results of each investigation; and literature references where more detailed information concerning each investigation can be found. The review contains a brief description of the operation of the experimental devices referenced in the tables. The review also contains an assessment of the various experimental devices currently capable of quantitative nucleation rate measurements.
