DATAFILE: HOCl_Barnes(1998)_298K_200-550nm(2nm).txt
NAME: hypochlorous acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Barnes(1998)
T: 298K
λ: 200-550nm(2nm)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: R.J. Barnes, A. Sinha, and H.A. Michelsen, "Assessing the contribution of the lowest triplet state to the near-UV absorption spectrum of HOCl", J. Phys. Chem. A 102, 8855-8859 (1998); DOI: 10.1021/jp9835869
COMMENTS: The near-UV absorption spectrum of HOCl is examined using laser induced fluorescence to monitor OH fragments resulting from photodissociation; continuously tunable laser radiation in the region 380-550 nm with bandwidths of 0.12 to 0.3 cm-1 was used

Absorption cross sections at 2-nm intervals were calculated by using a fit over the own data and those of

J.B. Burkholder, "Ultraviolet absorption spectrum of HOCl", J. Geophys. Res. 98, 2963-2974 (1993); DOI: 10.1029/92JD02522
