This is not the best.  Porra et al (from a couple of years ago, I forget
where), is now the standard set of equations for chl determinations.

the Porra article is from 1989: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 975, pp.
'Determination of accurate extinction coefficients and simultaneous equations
for assaying chlorophylls a and b extracted with four diffrent solvents:
verification of the concentration of chlorphyll standards by atmoic
absorption spectroscopy ' by R.J.Porra, W.A. Thompson and P.E. Kriedemann

I hope that information will help.
