NAME: iodomethane, methyl iodide
AUTHOR(YEAR): PorretGoodeve(1937)
T: 292K
λ: 203-366nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: D. Porret and C.F. Goodeve, "The continuous absorption spectrum of methyl iodide", Trans. Faraday Soc. 33, 690-693 (1937); DOI: 10.1039/TF9373300690
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements by photographic photometry

The smooth absorption curve through some 100 data points in Fig. 1 (log ε vs. wavenumber) has been digitized, and then converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.835×10-21) vs. wavelength
