Abstract

A Fourier transform microwave spectrometer has been used to make high resolution measurements on the J = 1-0 rotational transition for 11 isotopomers of SnO. For the most abundant isotopomer the transition was observed in the v = 0, 1, 2, and 3 states. Magnetic hyperfine structure was observed in the transitions for 115Sn16O, 117Sn16O and 119Sn16O. The nuclear spin-rotation constant CI(Sn) has been determined for these isotopomers for the first time and these constants have been related to nmr shielding parameters. A multi-isotopomer analysis, including data from the 120Sn17O and 120Sn18O isotopomers, has been performed on the data. Born-Oppenheimer breakdown parameters were required in the fit and these parameters have been compared to those for the other Sn-chalcogenides.
