There were 377 lines detected in total, of which 360 lines are assigned to 57 known molecules (including 29 rare isotopomers and two cyclic isomers). Only 17 weak lines remain unidentified. Rotational lines of isotopomers 13CCH and HN13C are detected for the first time in IRC+10216 . The detection of the formaldehyde lines in this star is also confirmed. Possible abundance differences among the three 13C-substituted isotopic isomers of HC3N is reported. Isotopic ratios of C and O are confirmed to be nonsolar while those of S and Si to be nearly solar. Column densities have been estimated for 15 molecular species. Modified spectroscopic parameters have been calculated for NaCN, Na13CN, KCN, and SiC2. Transition frequencies from the present observations were used to improve the spectroscopic parameters of Si13CC, 29SiC2, and 30SiC2. Description: The surveys were carried out using the 2mm receiver of the Arizona Radio Observatory (ARO) 12m Telescope (KP12M) at Kitt Peak (2005 April 26 to 2006 April 29) and the 1.3mm JT receiver of the Heinrich Hertz Submillimeter Telescope (SMT) at Mt. Graham (2005 October 31 to 2007 January 24). Observed frequency ranges are 131.2-160.3GHz for the 2mm survey, 219.5-245.5 and 251.5-267.5GHz for the 1.3mm survey.

Note (1): Line identification was performed by using the Cologne Database for Molecular Spectroscopy (CDMS; see Muller et al., 2001A&A...370L..49M, 2005JMoSt.742..215M) and the Molecular Spectroscopy database of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL; see Pickett et al., 1998JQSRT..60..883P). Note (2): Notes on line frequency as follows: a = average frequency of hyperfine components; b = same as a, but the hyperfine of components of neighbouring fine structure lines blended together, so that the fine structure lines are also partially blended. (for MgNC); d = unresolved lambda doublet (for SiC). Note (3): Note on Iint: * = Integrated line intensity derived from SHELL fitting. Note (4): Notes on line blending as follows: s = single lines; a = lines fitted using fixed line frequency and line width of 14.5km/s; b = lines too narrow; c = differentiable blended lines of the same species; d = undifferentiable blended lines of different species; e = differentiable blended lines of the same species; (hyperfine or lambda doublet or weak asymmetric transitions); f = undifferentiable blended lines of different species.
