NAME: 4-methyl-trans-2-pentene
AUTHOR(YEAR): JonesTaylor(1955)
T: 298K
λ: 167-204nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: L.C. Jones and L.W. Taylor, "Far ultraviolet absorption spectra of unsaturated and aromatic hydrocarbons", Anal. Chem. 27, 228-237 (1955); DOI: 10.1021/ac60098a015
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a VUV monochromator, a windowless hydrogen discharge tube, and a photomultiplier (spectral band width 0.17 nm)

Extinction coefficients plotted in Fig. 5 J have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
