NAME: pyruvic acid
AUTHOR(YEAR): MelloukiMu(2003)
T: 298K
λ: 290-380nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A. Mellouki and Y. Mu, "On the atmospheric degradation of pyruvic acid in the gas phase", J. Photochem.Photobiol. A: Chem. 157, 295-300 (2003); DOI: 10.1016/S1010-6030(03)00070-4
COMMENTS: The absorption spectrum was measured in a 100 cm long and 2.5 cm diameter absorption cell through which a collimated output of a 30W D2 lamp was passed and focused onto the entrance slit of the spectrophotometer equipped with a 1800 grooves mm−1 grating and a 1024 element diode array detector
