ExoMol line lists. XXIX. The rotation-vibration spectrum of methyl chloride up to 1200 K Owens A., Yachmenev A., Thiel W., Fateev A., Tennyson J., Yurchenko S.N. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 479, 3002 (2018)> =2018MNRAS.479.3002O (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

The line lists, OYT-35 and OYT-37, are suitable for temperatures up to T=1200K and consider transitions with rotational excitation up to J=85 the wavenumber range 0-6400cm-1 (wavelengths λ>1.56um). Over 166 billion transitions between 10.2 million energy levels have been calculated variationally for each line list using a new empirically refined potential energy surface, determined by refining to 739 experimentally derived energy levels up to J=5, and an established ab initio dipole moment surface. The OYT line lists show excellent agreement with newly measured high-temperature infrared absorption cross-sections, reproducing both strong and weak intensity features across the spectrum. The line lists are also available from the ExoMol database. Description: The temperature dependent super-lines (cm/molecule) are given in sl35_XXX.dat (sl37_XXX.dat), 12 files each for the temperatures T = XXX (100, 200, 300, ..., 1200 K). The super-lines are represented by two grids: - nu<10cm-1: a uniform grid of 0.0001cm-1 - n ≥10cm-1: a non-uniform grid of R=1000000. The states35.dat (states37.dat) files contain lists of ro-vibrational states. Each state is labelled with: nine local mode vibrational quantum numbers and the vibrational symmetry; three rotational quantum numbers including the total angular momentum J and rotational symmetry; the total symmetry quantum number Gamma. Each ro-vibrational state has a unique number, which is the number of the row in which it appears in the file. This number is the means by which the state is related to the second part of the data system, the transitions files (available from The total degeneracy is also given to facilitate the intensity calculations. The states files are bzipped, and need to be extracted before use. Experimental cross sections of CH3Cl are given on wavenumber grid 550-6500cm-1 with the resolution of 0.5cm-1 for T=25C, 300C, 400C, 500C at natural abundance using the log10-convention. To convert to the units of log-e (HITRAN) multiply by 2.30259. The cross sections were recorded for the following conditions: ---------------------------------------------------------------------- T, C concentration P, bar ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 25C 1.35% ∼1 300C 6.67% 1.0094 400C 2.93% 1.0123 500C 6.67% 1.0312 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- File Summary:
