Type

Table entries are sorted according to reliability of the data, listing the most reliable type first: L) literature review, M) measured, V) VP/AS = vapor pressure/aqueous solubility, R) recalculation, T) thermodynamical calculation, X) original paper not available, C) citation, Q) QSPR, E) estimate, ?) unknown, W) wrong. See Section 3.1 of Sander (2015) for further details.

Notes

158) Value obtained by Saxena and Hildemann (1996) using the group contribution method.
164) Value given here as quoted by Mackay et al. (1995).
170) HSDB (2015) refer to Abraham et al. (1994b) as the source but this value cannot be found there. Maybe the value is taken from Abraham et al. (1990).

The numbers of the notes are the same as in Sander (2015). References cited in the notes can be found here.
