Abstract: The microwave spectrum of the lenear MgNC radical was observed for the first time in a high temperature cell coupled with DC discharge in a mixture of Mg vapor, cyanogen, and argon. The ground state ($^{2}\Sigma$) spectrum observed between 250 and 370 GHz was analyzed to determine the rotational, centrifugal distortion, and spin-rotation constants: $B_{0}=5966.8969(24) MHz, D_{0}=0.004 2338(35) MHz, H_{0}=0.308(16)\times 10^{-7}$ MHz, and $\gamma_{0} =15.219(13)$ MHz, with one standard deviation in parentheses. The obtained molecular constants enable us to assign six unidentified lines in $IRC+10216$ (Guelin $et al.^{1}$) to the transitions of MgNC. Many spectral lines of the $\nu_{2}$ bending vibrational excited states have been also observed: The detail analysis will be presented.
