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.


92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
107) Data taken from the supplement.
108) Calculated using the EPI Suite (v4.0) method.
109) Calculated using the SPARC (v4.2) method.
110) Calculated using the COSMOtherm (v2.1) method.
111) Calculated using the ABSOLV (ADMEBoxes v4.1) method.
146) Value at T = 299 K.
237) In their Table 13, Clever et al. (2005) list Ostwald coefficients that are probably incorrect by a factor of 100. Therefore, these values are not used. Instead, H is calculated using the mol fraction x1 from the same table.

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