Notes

9) Value at T = 293 K.
19) Value at T = 310 K.
27) Value at T = 297 K.
31) Value at T = 295 K.
66) Value at T = 275 K.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
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).
116) Value given here as quoted by Staudinger and Roberts (1996).
127) Solubility in sea water.
248) The same data were also published in McConnell et al. (1975).
249) Values at different temperatures are from different sources. Thus a temperature dependence was not calculated.
