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

3) Value given here as quoted by Fogg and Sangster (2003).
6) Only the tabulated data between T = 273 K and T = 303 K from Dean (1992) were used to derive H and its temperature dependence. Above T = 303 K, the tabulated data could not be parameterized very well. The partial pressure of water vapor (needed to convert some Henry's law constants) was calculated using the formula given by Sander et al. (1995). The quantities A and α from Dean (1992) were assumed to be identical.
7) Several references are given in the list of Henry's law constants but not assigned to specific species.
19) Value at T = 310 K.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.

The numbers of the notes are the same as in Sander (2015). References cited in the notes can be found here.
