NAME: acetic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Leach(2006)
T: 298K
λ: 62.1-205.8nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: S. Leach, S. Schwell, S. Un, H.-W. Jochims, and H. Baumgärtel, "VUV absorption spectrum of acetic acid between 6 and 20 eV", Chem. Phys. 321, 159-170 (2005); DOI: 10.1016/j.chemphys.2005.08.044
COMMENTS: High-resolution (~8 meV at 100 nm) absorption measurements using monochomated synchrotron radiation as a light source

The data points (absorption cross section vs. photon energy) plotted in Fig. 2 (6-9.8 eV) and Fig. 3 (9.7-12 ev) have been digitized and combined with the digitized data at 12-20 eV shown in Fig. 1
