NAME: 2,4-pentanedione, β-diketone, acetylacetone
AUTHOR(YEAR): Nakanishi(1978)
T: 298K
λ: 126.5-200.5nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: H. Nakanishi, H. Morita, and S. Nagakura, "Charge-tranfer character in the intramolecular hydrogen bond: Vacuum ultraviolet spectra of acetylacetone and its fluoro derivatives", Bull. Chem. Soc. Japan 51, 1723-1729 (1978); DOI: 10.1246/bcsj.51.1723
COMMENTS: Absorptionm measurements using a deuterium discharge lamp and xenon and krypton continuum lamps as VUV light sources and a VUV spectrophotometer

Extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber plotted in Fig. 2 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235 × 10-21) vs. wavelength
