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

9) Value at T = 293 K.
27) Value at T = 297 K.
140) Because of discrepancies between the values shown in Tables 4 and 5 of Shiu and Ma (2000), the data are not used here.
143) Literature-derived value.
144) Final adjusted value.
