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.


89) Measured at high temperature and extrapolated to T = 298.15 K.
107) Data taken from the supplement.
108) Calculated using the EPI Suite (v4.0) method.
109) Calculated using the SPARC (v4.2) method.
110) Calculated using the COSMOtherm (v2.1) method.
111) Calculated using the ABSOLV (ADMEBoxes v4.1) method.
122) Extrapolated from data above 298 K.
240) Calculated using the new SPARC method, see Arp et al. (2006) for details.
241) Calculated using the COSMOtherm method, see Arp et al. (2006) for details.
