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.
92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
105) The same data were also published in Hansen et al. (1995).
140) Because of discrepancies between the values shown in Tables 4 and 5 of Shiu and Ma (2000), the data are not used here.
142) Value given here as quoted by Haynes (2014).

The numbers of the notes are the same as in Sander (2015). References cited in the notes can be found here.
