I (old?) spectroscopy analysis notation

  1. Jun 30, 2016 #1

    I've been studying spectroscopy in organic molecule and I came across an old data from 1934.

    280(5b)(k,i±e), 297(1vd)(e), 354(1vd)(k,e),
    378(1vd)(k,e), 398(Ovd) (e), 426(1vd)(k,e),
    766(Ovd) (k,e), 807 (Od) (k,e), 817 (lb) (k,e),
    842(1vd)(k,e), 862(2)(k,e), 878(3)(k,e),

    This is a piece of the table for Octane. You can find it on the article: The Journal of Chemical Physics 9, 295 (1941); doi: 10.1063/1.1750899.

    I couldn't identify this notation, and I am stuck on it.
    Do you know where I can learn about this notation?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Why don't you try using Latex for writing equations?

    Thanks for your replay.

    This is not an equation. This is a table from the cited article, which I have no ideia what it is about.
