W-rev = Wallington review

Absorption cross sections have been read from Fig. 1 by

T.J. Wallington, P. Dagaut, and M.J. Kurylo, "Ultraviolet absorption cross sections and reaction kinetics and mechanisms for peroxy radicals in the gas phase," Chem. Rev. 92, 667-710 (1992); DOI: 10.1021/cr00012a008

Correction: Value at 260 nm: 1.46×10-18 cm2 molecule-1 instead of 1.86×10-18 cm2 molecule-1
