DATAFILE: 3-C5H11ONO2_RobertsFajer(1989)_298K_270-314nm(fit).txt
NAME: 3-pentyl nitrate
AUTHOR(YEAR): RobertsFajer(1989)
T: 298K
λ: 270-314nm(fit)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: J.M. Roberts and R.W. Fajer, "UV absorption cross sections of organic nitrates of potential atmospheric importance and estimation of atmospheric lifetimes", Environ. Sci. Technol. 23, 945-951 (1989); DOI: 10.1021/es00066a003
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a single-beam UV/visible spectrophotometer; scanning of the sample at 0.5-nm slit width

Least-squares fit of the measured values for λ ≥ 270 nm

σ(λ) = exp (a λ2 + b λ + c) with
a = -1.446×10-3, b = 0.7712, c = -147.4 (λ in nm)

Measured data are not shown in the figures
