dc.description.abstractThe first pure-rotational spectra of two transition-metal sulfides, copper sulfide (CuS) and manganese sulfide (MnS) have been determined. In addition, the millimeter/sub-millimeter spectra of SrS, SrNH₂ and SrND₂ have been determined for the first time. Electronic ground states have been confirmed with experimental evidence. Results indicate that the bonding trends of the transition-metals sulfides are slightly different than their isovalent analogs, the transition-metal oxides. Furthermore, the study of MnS has allowed for experimental testing of current high spin-state quantum theory, by analysing the spectra using third and fourth-order corrections to the effective Hamiltonian. Highly accurate spectroscopic constants and rotational transition frequencies have been determined for all species.
