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.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
103) The value is most probably taken from the report by Howe et al. (1987).
105) The same data were also published in Hansen et al. (1995).
116) Value given here as quoted by Staudinger and Roberts (1996).
248) The same data were also published in McConnell et al. (1975).
251) Probably an interpolation of the data from Balls (1980).
