COMMENTS: The near-infrared absorption spectrum of CH3O2 has been measured in the wavelength range 7497.4 −7473.8 cm−1 at a total pressure of 50 Torr helium. Radicals have been prepared by 248 nm laser photolysis of CH3I in the presence of O2, and a relative absorption spectrum has been extracted from a time-resolved measurement of CH3O2 decay at each wavelength. Absolute absorption cross sections were determined at two pressures (50 and 100 Torr) for three wavelengths (7488.18, 7489.16, 7490.33 cm−1), corresponding to distinct absorption maxima in the broad absorption band. No pressure dependence was observed.
