1The vibrational constants for both B 3Π0+ and X 1Σ+ have been recalculated from the data of Durie, 1966. Similar revised constants for the ground state may be found in Coxon, 1975. Additional higher order constants are needed to represent the B state levels above v=6.

3Onset of predissociation at J=45 of v=11 (23341 cm-1).
4RKR Franck-Condon factors, variation of transition moment with r Birks, Gabelnick, et al., 1975.
5Microwave sp. 8
6This is the value of Birks, Gabelnick, et al., 1975 and Coxon, 1975, based on a discussion of the vibrational levels in A 3Π1 and B 3Π0+; an upper limit of 2.894eV follows from the observed predissociation in B. Child and Bernstein, 1973 suggest D00 = 2.54 eV Child and Bernstein, 1973 on the basis of comparisons with other interhalogens.
7Electron impact appearance potential Irsa and Friedman, 1958.
8Iodine hyperfine coupling constants Tiemann, Hoeft, et al., 1973.
