The aim of this work is to provide direct experimental frequencies of its ground-vibrational state in the millimeter and submillimeter-wave regions to achieve its detection in the interstellar medium. Methoxyamine was chemically liberated from its hydrochloride salt, and its rotational spectrum was recorded at room temperature from 75 to 480GHz using the millimeter-wave spectrometer in Valladolid. Many observed transitions revealed A-E splitting caused by the internal rotation of the methyl group, which had to be treated with specific internal rotation codes. Over 400 lines were newly assigned for the most stable conformer of methoxyamine, and a precise set of spectroscopic constants was obtained. Spectral features of methoxyamine were then searched for in the Orion KL, Sgr B2, B1-b, and TMC-1 molecular clouds. Upper limits to the column density of methoxyamine were derived.

Note (1): The symmetry numbers sigma = 0 and 1 label the A and E transitions, respectively. Note (2): In case of the lines that are composed from degenerate asymmetric rotor transitions, equal weights were assigned to the components of these blends. Any other transitions that are accidentally blended, such as those corresponding to the unrelated A and E components, were not included in the fit. Note (3): In case of the blended transitions, this value corresponds to the difference between the observed and calculated central frequency.
