DATAFILE: C6H6_Richardson(1982)_999K_231-316nm.txt
NAME: benzene
AUTHOR(YEAR): Richardson(1982)
T: 999K
λ: 231-316nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: W.B. Richardson, S.S. Lin, and D.L. Evans, "Analysis of the molecular electronic absorption spectra of shock-heated aromatic compounds", J. Chem. Soc. Faraday Trans. II 78, 1-15 (1982); DOI: 10.1039/F29827800001
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements with shock-heated benzene using a Xe lamp as radiation 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
