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

92) Yaws and Yang (1992) give several references for the Henry's law constants but don't assign them to specific species.
141) The values of Dewulf et al. (1999) are not used here because, according to them, the calculated regression does not match the theoretical expectation for this species.

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