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.


5) Value given here as quoted by Lide and Frederikse (1995).
7) Several references are given in the list of Henry's law constants but not assigned to specific species.
8) Roth and Sullivan (1981) found that Hs depends on the concentration of OH.
9) Value at T = 293 K.
10) Value given here as quoted by Durham et al. (1981).

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