Thermodynamic of condensed phosphates are reviewed in order to check usual models to estimate their properties. For standard molar entropies S and standard molar heat capacities C(298.15 K), the rule of additivity of oxides entropies seems the best way with an accurancy of 2% and we have used this rule to generate thermodynamic data of alkaline, alkaline-earth, transition, rare-earth and "p" metals phosphates. C(T) are calculated using the formula proposed by Kellog, but this reliability cannot be ascertained since informations about allotropic transitions are scarce.

Keywords: Thermodynamics of phosphates; Entropies; Heat capacities.
