The reference temperature is the one you need to calculate an enthalpy for instance. You can more or less choose it freely but stick with common valutes, e.g. T=0C or T=25C. Jürgen

I've been puzzled by the same question for a while until I saw this:

So, the reference temperature corresponds to the formation enthalpy if a reaction is involved in your simulation.
