Notes

1Rotational analyses of C-X and E-X by Nair and Upadhya, 1966, 2; analyses of C-X, D-X, E-X by Rao and Apparao, 1966 and of D-X by Nair and Upadhya, 1966, 3 are erroneous or doubtful. See also Nair and Rai, 1967.
2Recalculated from Pandey, Upadhya, et al., 1968.
3Dv= +3.12E-7(v+1/2)2 - 1.3E-9(v+1/2)3.
4He = -2.288E-15.
5Microwave sp. 8
6Thermochemical value Brewer and Lofgren, 1950.
7Bands previously assigned to a B-X system are now known to be due to Cu2 Kleman and Lindkvist, 1954.
8Also value for eqQ(127I).
