Abstract

The rotational spectrum of the ZnCN radical in its ground electronic state was studied by using millimeter/sub-mm direct absorption techniques in the range of 339-543 GHz. The spectroscopic analysis were performed to determine the rotational, spin-rotation and l-type doubling parameters of the (000) and excited vibrational data of the given compounds. The results showed that the metal-carbon bond in ZnCN was weaker with respect to the bonds in CuCN and NiCN.
