NAME: azomethane
AUTHOR(YEAR): BassLaufer(1973-1974)
T: 298K
λ: 170-213nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A.M. Bass and A.H. Laufer, "Extinction coefficients of azomethane and dimethyl mercury in the near ultra-violet", J. Photochem. 2, 465-470 (1973-1974); DOI: 10.1016/0047-2670(74)85012-4
COMMENTS: Molecular hydrogen continuum as a light source; spectral resolution of the monochromator ∼0.005 nm

Absorption coefficients k (atm, 273K)-1 cm-1 (base e) have been digitized from Fig. 1 and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.72×10-20)
