The first measurement of the pure rotational spectrum of the TiF radical using millimeter/sub-mm direct absorption methods is presented. The given data is modeled using a Hund's case (a) effective Hamiltonian, leading to the determination of rotational, fine structure, and hyperfine parameters. This paper presents the results, interpret the constants and discuss their implications for bonding in 3d transition metal fluorides.
