DATAFILE: HC(O)OH_Suto(1988)_298K_106-250nm.txt
NAME: formic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Suto(1988)
T: 298K
λ: 106-250nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: M. Suto, X. Wang, and L.C. Lee, "Fluorescence yields from photodissociative excitation of HCOOH, HCOOCH3, and CH3COOH in the vacuum-ultraviolet region", J. Phys. Chem., 92, 3764-3768 (1988); DOI: 10.1021/j100324a015
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using synchrotron radiation, dispersed by a by a 1-m vacuum monochromator, as light source

The various regions of the absorption spectrum depicted in Fig. 3 have been digitized

The absorption cross section in the 180-250-nm region is affected by dimer
