COMMENTS: The UV absorption spectra of the individual (E) and (Z) isomers were not measured directly but determined from a linear regression analysis of the measured spectra of the isomerically mixed samples and their mixing ratios

Parameterization of the temperature dependence valid over the 190−225 nm wavelength range and 210−296 K temperature range:

log10 (σ(λ,T)) = ∑i Ai (λ - 200)i + (296 – T) ∑i Bi (λ - 200)i

with the following parameters Ai and Bi:

i    Ai       Bi

0  -19.24      0.00155
1  -0.1037     -0.000761
2  0.00203      -1.22×10-5
3     4.9656×10-6    5.52×10-6
4  -1.65×10-5       -2.365×10-7
5     5.03×10-7     2.33×10-9

The absorption cross sections as plotted in Fig. 3 have been calculated using this parameterization

The parameterization has been recommended by
