DATAFILE: HC(O)OH_BarnesSimpson(1963)_298K_140-180nm.txt
NAME: formic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): BarnesSimpson(1963)
T: 298K
λ: 140-180nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: E.E. Barnes and W.T. Simpson, "Correlations among electronic transitions for carbonyl and carboxyl in the vacuum ultraviolet", J. Chem. Phys. 39, 670-675 (1963); DOI: 10.1063/1.1734305
COMMENTS: Molar extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber have been digitized from Fig. 2 and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
