Title

Oxygen-17 Hyperfine Structures in the Pure Rotational Spectra of SrO, SnO, BaO, HfO and ThO

Abstract

Hyperfine structures arising from the couplings of the nuclear spin angular momentum of 17O (I = 5/2) with the end over end rotation of several metal-containing diatomic monoxides have been observed using a Fourier transform microwave spectrometer. the molecules have been produced by reacting 17O2 with laser ablated metal atoms. the oxygen-17 nuclear quadrupole coupling constants have been determined for the title molecules and are interpreted in terms of a simple Townes–Dailey model. Also, the oxygen-17 nuclear spin-rotation constants have been determined and used to calculate the oxygen-17 shieldings for each molecule.
