In question 9.103 it asks
A scientist proposed the following two reactions to produce ethanol, a liquid fuel:

C2H4 (g) + H20 (g) -> CH3CH2OH (l)
C2H6 (g) + H20 (g) -> CH3CH2OH (l) + H2 (g)

Assume standard-state conditions and determine if either reaction is thermodynamically spontaneous.

Does anyone know where to find the ∆G values for these compounds? I couldn't find them in any of the appendices, and the solutions manual just somehow has the numbers without doing any calculations, so I assume I should be able to look them up.

The values are in Appendix 2A, but you have to scroll down to the organic compounds section. It starts on page A15.
