DATAFILE: HCO_Hochanadel(1980)_298K_195-276nm(meas).txt
NAME: formyl radical
AUTHOR(YEAR): Hochanadel(1980)
T: 298K
λ: 195-276nm(meas)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: C.J. Hochanadel, T.J. Sworski, and P.J. Ogren, "Ultraviolet spectrum and reaction kinetics of the formyl radical", J. Phys. Chem. 84, 231-235 (1980); DOI: 10.1021/j100440a001
COMMENTS: A weak transient absorption in the ultraviolet, attributed to the HCO radical, was observed on flash photolyzing CO saturated with H2O vapor

Data oints for the measured extinction coefficients plotted in Fig. 2 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
