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.
121) Sieg et al. (2009) also provide data for supercooled water. Here, only data above 0 °C were used to calculate the temperature dependence.
126) Value at T = 296 K.
130) Values for salt solutions are also available from this reference.
196) Calculated under the assumption that ∆G and ∆H are based on [mol/l] and [atm] as the standard states.
209) Different types of Henry's law constants of Arp and Schmidt (2004) are inconsistent, with 5 % difference.
