Abstract

Rotational transition frequencies for 14NO-14NO, 14NO-15NO, and 15NO-15NO were measured using a pulsed-nozzle Fourier transform microwave spectrometer. Rotational constants for the different isotopic combinations allowed an unambiguous structure determination. The molecule is in a cis planar structure with a bond between the nitrogen atoms and an NNO angle θ = 99.6(2)°. The NN bond length is 2.236(1) Å and the NO bond length is 1.161(4) Å. Hyperfine structure due to nitrogen quadrupole coupling and spin-rotation interactions was observed and analyzed. Rotation constants, quadrupole coupling tensor, and spin-rotation tensor elements are given.
