COMMENTS: IUPAC(2015) recommendation:

Gaussian fit

σ(λ) = 3.5 × 10-17 exp [-0.00120325 × (324.0 - λ)2]

to the data of

F. Liu, J.M. Beames, A.M. Green, and M.I. Lester, "UV spectroscopic characterization of dimethyl- and ethyl-substituted carbonyl oxides," J. Phys. Chem. A 118, 2298-2306 (2014); DOI: 10.1021/jp412726z

σmax = (3.5 ± 2) × 10-17 cm2 molecule-1 is recommended for the absorption maximum at 324 nm
