NAME: formic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Leach(2002)
T: 298K
λ: 56.3-140.9nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: S. Leach, M. Schwell, F. Dulieu, J.-L. Chotin, H.-W. Jochims, and H. Baumgärtel, "Photophysical studies of formic acid in the VUV. Absorption spectrum in the 6-22 eV region", Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 4, 5025-5039 (2002); DOI: 10.1039/b205729h
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements between 6 and 22 eV at a maximum resolution of 3 meV using synchrotron radiation as a light source

Absorption cross sections vs. photon energy plotted in Figs. 1 and 3-7 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections vs. wavelength
