Caveat: This forum is for help on the core Python language
and its standard library. Asking about anything beyond that
may require a lot more information about the context - for
example few of us will know anything about UV/VIS spectra
(even what that means!)
However, I'll hazard a guess...

Shouldn't the last line use the variable figure
rather than a literal string 'figure' :

I'm guessing that's because you are passing the string 'figure'
instead of the variable.
But I don;t know anything about your plt object
or its savefig() method, not even which library
you are using. Is it matplotlib? Or something else?
