 Title: THE MILLIMETER- AND SUBMILLIMETER-WAVE SPECTRUM OF CYANOFORMAMIDE $(NCCONH_{2})$ Creators: Winnewisser, M.; Butler, Rebecca A. H.; De Lucia, Frank C.; Sastry, K. V. L. N. Issue Date: 2002 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: If water $(H_{2}O)$ and cyanogen (NCCN) are made to react in the presence of a catalyst, the product is cyanofonnamide $(NCCONH_{2})$. Using this procedure $Christiansen^{a}$ in the GIESSEN Laboratory has synthesized this molecule and has measured for the first time the microwave spectrum between 18 and 40 GHz with a Hewlett-Packard spectrometer. Employing a more convenient synthesis for $NCCONH_{2}$, we were able to extend the measurements into the millimeter- and submillimeter region using the fast-scan spectrometer (FASSST). The chemical synthesis, the measurements, the laboratory data and their analysis will be discussed. They should provide the information necessary to search for this species in space.
