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

206) Pecsar and Martin (1966) is quoted as the source. However, only activity coefficients and no vapor pressures are listed there.

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