ready NASA Ames PAH IR Spectroscopic Database


General Information
Collaboration between the astronomers, laboratory chemists and theoretical chemists at the facilities of NASA's Ames Research Center resulted in the collection of PAH spectra known as The NASA Ames PAH IR Spectroscopic Database. Collaboration with different institutes, across several countries, helped mature the database and allowed for the construction of the web-portal with its data and tools. Initially intended for astronomers to explain the astronomical unidentified infrared bands and to investigate the "PAH hypothesis", now the spectral data and developed paradigms prove also valuable to, e.g., chemists, environmentalists, pharmacologists and nano-technologists.

Awaiting DOI assignment.
