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

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.
103) The value is most probably taken from the report by Howe et al. (1987).
105) The same data were also published in Hansen et al. (1995).
139) Erratum for page 365 of Fogg and Sangster (2003): Data from Kondoh and Nakajima (1997) are cited incorrectly, giving the same values at 308.2 K and 318.2 K, respectively.

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