NAME: formaldehyde oxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): Sheps(2013)
T: 295K
λ: 295.156-449.421nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: L. Sheps, "Absolute ultraviolet absorption spectrum of a Criegee intermediate CH2OO", J. Phys. Chem. Lett. 4, 4201-4205 (2013); DOI: 10.1021/jz402191w
COMMENTS: The 266 nm photolysis of CH2I2 in a homogeneous slow-flow reactor generates CH2I radicals, which react with O2 to produce formaldehyde oxide CH2OO at T = 295 K

Transient absorption measurements were performed in a time-resolved cavity-enhanced absorption spectrometer, using a gas-phase chemical reactor coupled to a broadband optical resonator that operates in the 300−450 nm wavelength range

Absorption cross sections at ∼0.2-nm intervals have been obtained by personal communication from Leonid Sheps (June 2014)
