Abstract

The pure rotational spectrum of MnS (v = 0) in its X6σ+ ground state was discussed using millimeter and submillimeter direct absorption techniques. MnS was synthesized in the gas phase by the reaction of manganese vapor and CS2 in a high-temperature Borida-type oven and fourteen rotational transitions were measured for this radical. The analysis showed that MnS was more covalent than MnO but more ionic than MnH.
