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

20) Value given here as quoted by Betterton (1992).
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
153) Value given here as quoted by Gaffney et al. (1987).
201) The value given here was measured at a liquid phase mixing ratio of 1 μmol/mol. Servant et al. (1991) found that the Henry's law constant changes at higher concentrations.
202) Abraham (1984) smoothed the values from a plot of enthalpy against carbon number.
203) The value of H was taken from Keene and Galloway (1986).
204) Calculated using thermodynamic data from Latimer (1952).
205) Value at pH = 4.
