NAME: peroxybenzoic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Roth(2010)
T: 293K
λ: 245-260nm(estimated)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: E. Roth, A. Chakir, and A. Ferhati, "Study of a benzoylperoxy radical in the gas phase: Ultraviolet spectrum and C6H5C(O)O2 + HO2 reaction between 295 and 357 K", J. Phys. Chem. A 114, 10367-10379 (2010); DOI: 10.1021/jp1021467
COMMENTS: Peroxybenzoic acid is a stable product of the C6H5C(O)O2 + HO2 reaction

The absorption cross sections have not been measured, but estimated by analogy with peracetic acid CH3C(O)OOH
