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.
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).
126) Value at T = 296 K.
127) Solubility in sea water.
135) The temperature dependence is recalculated using the data in Table 4 of Lamarche and Droste (1989) and not taken from their Table 5.
147) Value at T = 283 K.
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.
251) Probably an interpolation of the data from Balls (1980).
