T: 300K
λ: 200-228.5nm(p=35.2Torr)

COMMENTS: Pressure = 35.2 Torr

Spectra were determined using a 10 cm cell and Bausch and Lomb model 505 spectrometer

Undefined amount of monomer and dimer contribute; calculated assuming monomer only

Extinction coefficients plotted in Fig. 5-6 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
