155) Value at T = 290 K.
705) Henry's law constants were evaluated using data from Florida sandy field soil.
706) According to Thomas et al. (2006), theoretical Henry's law constants were calculated using the "normal boiling point, the critical temperature, and the enthalpy of volatilization at the normal boiling point".
