COMMENTS: Synthesis of the Criegee intermediate by photolysis (118 nm) of a (CH3)2CI2 (2,2-diiodopropane) - O2 - Ar gas mixture and subsequent supersonic expansion; absorption measurements of the isolated (CH3(2COO species by electronic excitation of the B ← X transition using tunable UV laser radiation in the wavelength range 280-420 nm

Absorption cross sectiond have been obtained by personal communication from Fang Liu (April 2014) together with the following remark:

"Please note that due to experimental factors the absolute cross sections may have uncertainties on the order of a factor of 2"
