NAME: methyl vinyl ketone, MVK
AUTHOR(YEAR): Fahr(1993)
T: 298K
λ: 160.0-260.0nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A. Fahr, W. Braun, and A. H. Laufer, "Photolysis of methyl vinyl ketone at 193 nm: Quantum yield determinations of methyl and vinyl radicals", J. Phys. Chem. 97, 1502-1506 (1993); DOI: 10.1021/j100110a1007
COMMENTS: The absorption cross sections were determined employing a one meter, single beam, vacuum monochromator provided with interchangeable vacuum UV and UV photomultipliers, a deuterium light source, analog to digital circuitry, a computer controlled stepping motor drive for wavelength control, and computerized data acquisition

The absorption spectrum depicted in Fig. 1 has been digitized
