NAME: ammonia
AUTHOR(YEAR): Tannenbaum(1953)
T: 298K
λ: 171.6-226.0nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: E. Tannenbaum, E.M. Coffin, and A.J. Harrison, "The far ultraviolet absorption spectra of simple alkyl amines", J. Chem. Phys. 21, 311-318 (1953); DOI: 10.1063/1.1698878
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements by photographic spectrophotometry using flowing and static vapors and hydrogen lamps as light sources

Extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber plotted in Fig. 1 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
