Diatomic constants for 209Bi32S
One of two systems of ultra-violet bands attributed to BiS is, in fact, the B - X system of S2 [see Barrow, Stobart, et al., 1967]. The other, consisting of V(?) shaded bands in the region 43200 - 46900 cm-1, appears to include bands which the same author ( Sur, 1951) also assigned to SbS. In the later case the bands were described as red-degraded.
