NAME: pyruvic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): Horowitz(2001)
T: 298K
λ: 255-405nm(5nm)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A. Horowitz, R. Meller, and G.K. Moortgat, "The UV-VIS absorption cross sections of the α-dicarbonyl compounds: pyruvic acid, biacetyl and glyoxal", J. Photochem. Photobiol. A: Chem. 146, 19-27 (2001); DOI: 10.1016/S1010-6030(01)00601-3
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a diode-array spectrometer; monochromator setting with a nominal resolution of 0.07 nm/pixel and an effective resolution of ∼0.25 nm (spectral full width at half trace height-bandpath)

Averages over 5-nm intervals have been obtained by personal communication from Abraham Horowitz (1999)
