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 (2023) for further details.


21) Several references are given in the list of Henry's law constants but not assigned to specific species.
230) Yao et al. (2002) compared two QSPR methods and found that radial basis function networks (RBFNs) are better than multiple linear regression. In their paper, they provide neither a definition nor the unit of their Henry's law constants. Comparing the values with those that they cite from Yaws (1999), it is assumed that they use the variant Hvpx and the unit atm.
238) Value given here as quoted by Gharagheizi et al. (2010).
247) Calculated using a combination of a group contribution method and neural networks.
248) Modarresi et al. (2005) use different descriptors for the QSPR models. They conclude that their "COSA" method and the artificial neural network (ANN) are best. However, as COSA is not ideal for hydrocarbons with low solubility, only results obtained with ANN are shown here.
