Abstract

Transmittance spectra of four gaseous hydrocarbons were measured by using a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. The analyzed substances are propane, n-butane, ethanol, and iso-octane (2,2,4-trimethyl-pentane). Mixtures of hydrocarbons and nitrogen were prepared and analyzed in an optical cell between 298 and 473K at pressures up to 1800kPa. Molecule specific absorption cross sections were calculated for different temperatures and pressures that are relevant for technical absorption measurements. Dependences of the spectral absorption cross sections, as well as the integrated absorption cross sections on temperature and pressure, were investigated.
