1The vibrational and rotational constants have been recalculated from data in Stricker and Krauss, 1968 for 3 leq v leq 8. Lower levels are not observed, higher levels are affected by a perturbation. See also Child and Bernstein, 1973. Convergence of v'-0 absorption progression at 21514 cm-1.
2Extrapolated from the 3-0 band.
3Recalculated by Coxon, 1975 from the infrared data of Nielsen and Jones, 1951. nu0 of the fundamental, 773.83 cm-1, agrees rather poorly with DeltaG(1/2) = 773.46 from the electronic absorption spectrum Stricker and Krauss, 1968.
4muel(v=0) = 0.8881 D Davis and Muenter, 1972; the sign of the dipole moment is +ClF- Green, 1973, Carroll and Thomas, 1974, Janda, Klemperer, et al., 1976, see however Ewing, Tigelaar, et al., 1972, McGurk, Norris, et al., 1973. eqQ(Cl) and other hyperfine structure constants in Davis and Muenter, 1972, Lovas and Tiemann, 1974. Zeeman effect Ewing, Tigelaar, et al., 1972, gJ = -0.1089 muN.
5Of the two possible values derived from the convergence of the B-X system thermochemical data Nordine, 1974 strongly favor the higher value given here. But Coxon, 1975 considers the lower value D00= Schumacher, Schmitz, et al., 1950.5581 eV Coxon, 1975 equally likely; see also Dibeler, Walker, et al., 1970.
6From the photoelectron spectrum Anderson, Mamantov, et al., 1971, DeKock, Higginson, et al., 1972; in good agreement with photoionization [12.65 eV Dibeler, Walker, et al., 1970] and electron impact [12.7 eV Irsa and Friedman, 1958] appearance potentials.
7Predissociation (diffuseness) of 11-0, 12-0, 13-0 bands at 21254 - 21399 cm-1, See 1.
8See 1.
9From D00(ClF), I.P.(ClF), and I.P.(Cl).
10From photoelectron spectra Anderson, Mamantov, et al., 1971, DeKock, Higginson, et al., 1972.
11From DeKock, Higginson, et al., 1972; Anderson, Mamantov, et al., 1971 give 912 ± 30 cm-1.
