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

23) Value at T = 303 K.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
188) Data from Table 1 by Zhou and Mopper (1990) were used to redo the regression analysis. The data for acetone in their Table 2 are incorrect.

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