M Aldehydes And Ketones

Figures 4.26, 4.27, and 4.28 show typical UV absorption spectra for some simple aldehydes and ketones (Rogers, 1990; Martinez et al., 1992; see also Cronin and Zhu, 1998, for n-pentanal). Formaldehyde stands out from the higher aldehydes and ketones in that it has a highly structured spectrum and furthermore, the absorption extends out to longer wavelengths. The latter difference is particularly important because the solar intensity increases rapidly with wavelength here (Chapter 3.C.1) and hence the photolysis rate constant for HCHO and the rate of production of free radicals
