COMMENTS: Spectra were collected using a Bruker 120 HR FTS equipped with an external light-emitting diode (LED) light source centered at 459 nm (fwhm 27 nm, LEDEngin)

The LED was chosen as it yields higher photon flux and thus better signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) than Xe-arc or halogen lamps at blue wavelengths

The instrument was configured for moderately high resolution (1 cm−1) and boxcar apodization was applied to the data

Moderately high-resolution data as given in the "Supporting Information" published along with the online version of the paper
