NAME: benzene
AUTHOR(YEAR): KimuraNagakura(1965)
T: 298K
λ: 159.6-208.5nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: K. Kimura and S. Nagakura, "Vacuum ultra-violet absorption spectra of various mono-substituted benzenes", Mol. Phys. 9, 117-135 (1965); DOI: 10.1080/00268976500100141
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a recording vacuum ultra-violet spectrophotometer constructed in the authors' laboratory and a hydrogen discharge lamp of hot-cathode type as a light source

Extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber as plotted in Fig. 1 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
