DATAFILE: (CH3)5Si2H_Kerst(1998)_298K_176-243nm.txt
NAME: pentamethyldisilane
AUTHOR(YEAR): Kerst(1998)
T: 298K
λ: 176-243nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: C. Kerst, I. Lein, and P. Potzinger,, " Gas-phase photolysis of pentamethyldisilane at 206 nm,", J. Photochem. Photobiol. A: Chem. 113, 9-21 (1998); DOI: 10.1016/S1010-6030(97)00305-5
COMMENTS: No experimental details given. Presumably the same as for the absorption measurements of hexamethyldisilane (single beam apparatus incorporating a stabilized deuterium lamp, a vacuum UV monochromator, and a photomultiplier) by

S. Patzer, R.N. Arthur, P. Potzinger, and H.G. Wagner, Photolysis of hexamethyldisilane at 206 nm, J. Photochem. Photobiol. A: Chem, 110, 221-227 (1997); DOI: 10.1016/S1010-6030(97)00198-6

The data points for the absorption cross sections shown in Fig. 1 (logarithmic scaling of the σ axis) have been digitized, and the wavelengths have been rounded
