DATAFILE: CH3O2_Hochanadel(1977)_297K_205-289nm(meas).txt
NAME: methylperoxy radical
AUTHOR(YEAR): Hochanadel(1977)
T: 297K
λ: 205-289nm(meas)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: C.J. Hochanadel, J.A. Ghormley, J.W. Boyle, and P.J. Ogren, "Absorption spectrum and rates of formation and decay of the CH3O2 radical", J. Phys. Chem. 81, 3-7 (1977); DOI: 10.1021/j100516a002
COMMENTS: Flash photolysis of azomethane was used to produce CH3 radicals which reacted with O2 to form CH3O2

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