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

7) Several references are given in the list of Henry's law constants but not assigned to specific species.
19) Value at T = 310 K.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
103) The value is most probably taken from the report by Howe et al. (1987).
105) The same data were also published in Hansen et al. (1995).
129) Calculated using Gh and Hh from Table 2 in Andon et al. (1954). Note that the thermodynamic functions in that table are not based on their α in Table 1. Instead, the expression exp(−Gh/(RT)) yields the Henry's law constant Hxp in the unit 1/atm.
137) Value given here as quoted by HSDB (2015).
