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

89) Measured at high temperature and extrapolated to T = 298.15 K.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
130) Values for salt solutions are also available from this reference.
156) Extrapolated from data above 298 K.
