NAME: ammonia
AUTHOR(YEAR): MenonMichel(1967)
T: 552-2650K
λ: 230nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: P.G. Menon and K.W. Michel, "Ultraviolet absorption of ammonia at high temperatures behind shock waves", J. Phys. Chem. 71, 3280-3284 (1967); DOI: 10.1021/j100869a024
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements in shock-heated ammonia

The smooth fit of some 60 data points, extinction coefficients vs. temperature, shown in Fig. 3 has been digitized (conversion factor to absorption cross sections 3.8235× 10-21)
