COMMENTS: IUPAC(2015) recommendation:

The absorption cross sections given at 5-nm intervals (error limit ±15%) are based on the data of

W.L. Ting, Y.-H. Chen, W. Chao, M.C. Smith, and J.J.-M. Lin, "The UV absorption spectrum of the simplest Criegee intermediate CH2OO", Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 16, 10438-10443 (2014); DOI: 10.1039/C4CP00877D
