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

19) Value at T = 310 K.
31) Value at T = 295 K.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
100) Calculated from the solvation enthalpy, using the van 't Hoff equation.
103) The value is most probably taken from the report by Howe et al. (1987).

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