J/ApJ/847/67  High-resolution FIR spectrum of anti-vinyl alcohol  (Bunn+, 2017)

The ν15 OH torsional fundamental investigated here is more than 200cm-1 removed from the next nearest vibration, making it practically unperturbed and ideal to help refine the ground state rotational constants that were previously determined from 25 microwave lines. We assigned 1335 lines within the ν15 fundamental centered at 261.5512cm-1, with J and Ka ranges of 1-59 and 0-16, respectively. The microwave and far-infrared line positions were fit with Watson-type A- and S-reduced Hamiltonians, with the inclusion of quartic and select sextic distortion terms. This resulted in a significant refinement of the ground state constants, in addition to the determination of the ν15=1 state constants for the first time. The spectroscopic parameters are in good agreement with the results from anharmonic coupled-cluster calculations, and should be useful in searches for rotationally and/or vibrationally warm anti-vinyl alcohol in interstellar molecular clouds. Description: The high-resolution FTIR spectrum of vinyl alcohol was obtained at the far-IR beamline of the Australian Synchrotron as previously outlined in Bunn+ (2017, ACS Earth Space Chem. 1 70).
