Remarks:
The use of secondary sources of data is acceptable when they are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and a consequent selection of a reliable and representative value for the property under investigation. Therefore, although the method used is not known, the values/data presented here are acceptable as they are from a reliable secondary source of phys chem. data.
