NAME: methylglyoxal, MGLY
AUTHOR(YEAR): KyleOrchard(1977)
T: 387K
λ: 436nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: E. Kyle and S.W. Orchard, "The photolysis of methyl glyoxal vapour at 436 nm", J. Photochem. 7, 305-317 (1977); DOI: 10.1016/0047-2670(77)80012-9
COMMENTS: Photolysis of methylglyoxal at 436 nm

The absorption cross section value (converted from the reported extinction coefficient using factor 3.8235×10-21) should be treated as a rough guide only
