NAME: iodomethane, methyl iodide
AUTHOR(YEAR): BaughcumLeone(1980)
T: 298K
λ: 211.8-305.2nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: S.L. Baughcum and S.R. Leone, "Photofragmentation infrared emission studies of vibrationally excited free radicals CH3 and CH2I", J. Chem. Phys. 72, 6531-6545 (1980); DOI: 10.1063/1.439111
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using "a commercial spectrophotometer"

Extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber as plotted in Fig. 2a have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
