NAME: N,N-dimethylformamide, DMF
AUTHOR(YEAR): BarnesSimpson(1963)
T: 298K
λ: 147-234nm

COMMENTS: The absorption spectrum (extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber) shown in Fig. 2 has been digitized, and the extinction coefficients have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
