Notes

1Vibrational numbering uncertain. All information based on perturbations in C 2Sigma(+).
2Spin-splitting constant gamma ~ -1.6.
3Strong perturbations produced by interaction with B 2Sigma+, and weaker perturbations produced by D 2Sigma(-). The constants in the table are deperturbed values. The observed origin of the 0-0 band is at 21452.0 cm-1.
4Spin-splitting constant gamma ~ -0.03.
5Vibrational numbering uncertain. Strong interaction with v=0 of C 2Sigma(+). The constants in the table are deperturbed values. The observed band origin is at 21285.0 cm-1.
6Spin splitting constant gamma = +1.00.
7Av= + 781.07 - 10.50(v+1/2); also J-dependent terms.
8J'=0 relative to N"=0.
9Lambda-type doubling; Deltavfe(2Pi1/2) = (+)[0.0177 + 0.00l6(v+1/2)](J+1/2).
10Spin-splitting constant gamma = -0.065.
11ESR sp. 13
12Thermochemical value (mass-spectrometry) Auwera-Mahieu and Drowart, 1967, Cocke and Gingerich, 1972.
