Abstract: The techniques of symmetry-adapted tensorial formalism and of vibrational extrapolation developed since many years have proved their efficiency for the spectroscopy of spherical-top molecules $(CH_{4}, SF_{6}, \ldots)^{a}$. We have recently extended these methods to the case of ``distorted spherical-tops'', i.e. $XY_{4}$ or $XY_{6}$ type molecules for which one or two of the Y ligands has been substituted by another atom. To do this, we start from the $O(3) \supset T_{d}$ or $O(3) \supset O_{h}$ formalism and perform a reorientation into the subgroup $C_{2 v}$ or $C_{4 v}$ We have first considered the case of $XY_{5}Z (C_{4 v}) molecules^{b,c}$. This model has been used to perform the analysis of the $\nu_{1}/\nu_{8}$ dyad of $SF_{5}{^{35}}Cl^{d}$ A set of programs for spectrum calculations and fits using these methods has been $developed^{e}$ and is made freely available through the World Wide $Web^{f}$. We also plan to use these programs for the spectroscopy of $SF_{5}Br$ or $IOF_{5}$, for instance. We have also undertaken the study of $XY_{2}Z_{2} (C_{2v}) molecules^{g}$ in the aim of studying the quasi spherical-top $SO_{2}F_{2}$. Our model has already been used to perform the analysis of the ground state of this molecule. These results have been compared to those of the usual asymmetric-top approach$^{h}$. We now intend to use this formalism to treat the strongly interacting pentad of this species.
