The experimental data was reported by
(1) C. A. Gottlieb, T. C. Killian, P. Thaddeus, P. Botschwina, J. Flügge, and M. Oswald, 1993, J. Chem. Phys. 98, 4478; and from
(2) M. C. Mc. Carthy and P. Thaddeus, 2002, J. Mol. Spectrosc. 211, 235.
The predictions, in particular at higher J or Ka, should be viewed with some caution. 13C nuclear spin-rotation splitting may be resolvable at low values of J. Respective data are from (2).
The dipole moment is from a quantum chemical calculation.
At low temperatures, it may be necessary to discern between ortho-l-C3H2 and para-l-C3H2. The ortho states are described by Ka odd, the para states by Ka even. The nuclear spin-weights are 3 and 1 for ortho-l-C3H2 and para-l-C3H2, respectively. The JKaKc = 111 is the lowest ortho state. It is approximately 9.966 cm–1 above ground.
