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

1) Vapor pressure data for water from Wagner and Pruss (1993) was needed to calculate H.
3) Value given here as quoted by Fogg and Sangster (2003).
5) Value given here as quoted by Lide and Frederikse (1995).
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.
80) Erratum for page 265 of Fogg and Sangster (2003): The corresponding equation is incorrect. The second term should not be divided by 100 K.
81) The value at T = 308.15 K doesn't fit and is not used for the linear regression.
