AbstractA pulsed-beam fourier transform microwave spectrometer was used to measure the rotational spectra of iodine heptafluoride, iodine pentafluoride, and the weakly bound complex, HCl...NNO. For IF7, only five rotational transitions were observed, and no resolvable hyperfine structure was detected. Based on this data, the A, B, and C rotational constants were determined to be 1746(3) MHz, 1732.0(8) MHz, and 1553.0(2) MHz, respectively. The existence of a pure rotational spectrum confirms that this molecule undergoes polar distortions. Twenty-two hyperfine components of the IF5 spectrum were recorded. The B rotational constant for this molecule was determined to be 2727.421(3) MHz, and the quadrupole coupling constant was found to be 1069.35(13) MHz. Though the work is still in progress on HCl...NNO, nine transitions have been recorded. In addition, five transitions have been recorded for an apparent trimer species composed of HCl, NNO, and an as yet unidentified third species.
