NAME: ethyl alcohol, ethanol
AUTHOR(YEAR): SalahubSandorfy(1971)
T: 298K
λ: 127.1-182.2nm(max)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: D.R. Salahub and C. Sandorfy, "The far-ultraviolet spectra of some simple alcohols and fluoroalcohols", Chem. Phys. Lett. 8, 71-74 (1971); DOI: 10.1016/0009-2614(71)80578-X
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a hydrogen discharge tube as the light source and a vacuum spectrophotometer under 0.02 nm resolution

Band maxima, extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber, as listed in Table 1 have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
