NAME: acetylene, ethyne
AUTHOR(YEAR): Wilkinson(1958)
T: 298K
λ: 127.8-165.3nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: P.G. Wilkinson, "Absorption spectra of acetylene and acetylene-d2 in the vacuum ultraviolet", J. Mol. Spectrosc. 2, 387-404 (1958); DOI: 10.1016/0022-2852(58)90089-4

Spectra were photographed at high dispersion using a krypton light source

Intensities of vibrational bands (in atm-1 cm-1) from Tables 1, 2, 4, and 6 have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.72×10-20)
