DATAFILE: HOCl_Knauth(1979)_333K_200-420nm.txt
NAME: hypochlorous acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Knauth(1979)
T: 333K
λ: 200-420nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: H.D. Knauth, H. Alberti, and H. Clausen, "Equilibrium constant of the gas reaction Cl2O + H2O = 2 HOCl and the ultraviolet spectrum of HOCl", J. Phys. Chem. 83, 1604-1612 (1979); DOI: 10.1021/j100475a010
COMMENTS: Single-beam spectrometer with a resolution of about 0.3-1 nm between 500 and 200 nm

Extinction coefficients from Table II have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
