COMMENTS: Absorption measurements for the stable product of the C6H5C(O)O2 + HO2 reaction

Experiments were performed using a laser photolysis technique coupled with UV-visible absorption detection

The UV spectrum was determined relative to the known cross section of the ethylperoxy radical C2H5O2 at 250 nm

The error limits of the absorption cross sections are listed in the third column of the datafile
