Rotational spectroscopy of methylamine up to 2.6 THz.


Abstract (from CDS):

Methylamine (CH3NH2) is the simplest primary alkylamine that has been detected in the interstellar medium. The molecule is relatively light, with the 50 K Boltzmann peak appearing near 800GHz. However, reliable predictions for its rotational spectrum are available only up to 500GHz. Spectroscopic analyses have been complicated by the two large-amplitude motions: internal rotation of the methyl top and inversion of the amino group. To provide reliable predictions of the methylamine ground state rotational spectrum above 500GHz, we studied its rotational spectrum in the frequency range from 500 to 2650GHz. The spectra of methylamine were recorded using the spectrometers based on Schottky diode frequency multiplication chains in the Lille laboratory (500-945GHz) and in JPL (1060-2660GHz). The analysis of the rotational spectrum of methylamine in the ground vibrational state was performed on the basis of the group-theoretical high barrier tunneling Hamiltonian developed for methylamine by Ohashi and Hougen. In the recorded spectra, we have assigned 1849 new rotational transitions of methylamine. They were fitted together with previously published data, to a Hamiltonian model that uses 76 parameters with an overall weighted rms deviation of 0.87. On the basis of the new spectroscopic results, predictions of transition frequencies in the frequency range up to 3THz with J≤50 and Ka≤20 are presented.
