COMMENTS: IUPAC(2008) recommendation:

The preferred values of the absorption cross-sections at 298 K are those reported by

H.G. Libuda, F. Zabel, E.H. Fink, and K.H. Becker, "Formyl chloride: UV absorption cross sections and rate constants for the reactions with Cl and OH," J. Phys. Chem. 94, 5860-5865 (1990); DOI: 10.1021/j100378a047.

These are the values of the absorption cross-sections at the absorption maxima and were measured at a spectral resolution of 0.7 nm
