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.
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.
102) Extrapolated from data measured between 40 °C and 80 °C.
103) The value is most probably taken from the report by Howe et al. (1987).
114) The data listed in Tabs. 2 and 3 of Dewulf et al. (1999) are inconsistent, with 5 % difference.
115) Value at T = 301 K.
116) Value given here as quoted by Staudinger and Roberts (1996).
