Near Ultra-Violet Emission Bands of Benzene


THE ultra-violet emission spectrum in the region 3000–2475 A., obtained by Asundi and Padhye by high-frequency electrical discharge through benzene vapour1, is probably more closely similar than the authors have realized to the fluorescence spectrum excited by Hg 2537 A. in benzene vapour at pressures which are not too low2.
