 Title: THE 5340{\AA} BANDS OF THIOCARBONYL CHLORIDE. Creators: Brand, J. C. D.; Callomon, J. H.; Moule, D. C.; Tyrrell, James; Goodwin, T. H. Issue Date: 1965 Abstract: The first singlet-singlet $\pi^{\ast}\leftarrow n$ transition of thiocarbonyl chloride, $CSCl_{2}$, gives rise to a system of bands whose origin occurs near 5340 {\AA}. Vibrational structure associated with the $^{35}Cl_{2}CS$ and $^{35}Cl^{37}ClCS$ isotopes has been analyzed in some detail. The pure electronic jump is forbidden as an electric dipole transition, $^{v}A_{2}\leftarrow|\rightarrow^{e}A_{1}$, and the bands observed are mainly vibronic $B_{2}\leftarrow A_{1}$ combinations. The organization of the spectrum is similar to that of the corresponding band system of formaldehyde, the resemblance being accentuated by the fact that the $^{1}A_{2}$ state of thiocarbonyl chloride is non-planar with similar geometry to the $^{1}A_{2}$ state of $CH_{2}O$. Some parameters of the excited state are collected in the table below.
