Aminoacetonitrile (NH2CH2CN) is one of the most feasible molecules for this purpose. This molecule was already detected toward Sgr B2(N). Aminoacetonitrile has a few low-lying vibrational excited states, and transitions within these states may be found in space. In this study, the pure-rotational transitions in the three lowest vibrational states in the 80-450 GHz range have been assigned and analyzed. It was found to be very important to include Coriolis coupling between the two lowest vibrational fundamentals, while the third one was unperturbed. The partition function was evaluated considering these new results. Description: The present experiments were carried out in two laboratories, at Bologna and Toho Universities, respectively. The experiment at Bologna was conducted in the frequency ranges 80-115 and 240-290GHz using a source-modulation millimeter/submillimeter-wave spectrometer. The experiment at Toho University was conducted in frequency regions complementary to those investigated in Bologna, reaching a frequency as high as 450GHz, with essentially the same apparatus and experimental conditions of the previous work (Motoki+ 2013, J/ApJS/209/23).
