Abstract: Because the $7.9 \mu m$ band of hydrogen peroxide $(\nu_{6})$ is the strongest infrared band of this molecule, this spectral region is potentially useful for remote sensing of $H_{2}O_{2}$ in the atmosphere. Using new high resolution Fourier transform spectra $(Ft 0.002 cm^{-1})$ recorded in the $1190-1340 cm^{-1}$ spectral region, it has been possible to extend the $analysis^{(1)}$ of the $\nu_{6}$ band of $H_{2}O_{2}$ leading to an improved analysis of the $(n,\top) = (0,1), (1,1), (2,1), (0,3), (1,3)$ torsional subbands. In addition to the $(\Delta r= \pm 1, \Delta K_{a} = \pm 2)$ torsion-rotation resonances within the $\nu_{6} = 1$ vibrational state, which are usually observed for $H_{2}O_{2}$, the energy level calculation takes into account the $\nu_{2} = 1 \leftrightarrow \nu_{6} =1, \nu_{3} =1 \leftrightarrow \nu_{6} =1$ and $\nu = 0 \leftrightarrow \nu_{6} = 1$ vibration-rotation resonances. In this way an excellent agreement was obtained for the $\top = 3$ torsion-rotation levels. On the other hand, for the $\top=1$ torsion-rotation levels the agreement was less satisfactory because in this case the scheme of vibration-torsion-rotation resonances is much more complicated. Finally line intensities were measured and satisfactorily reproduced, and a synthetic spectrum of the $\nu_{6}$ band of $H_{2}O_{2}$ was generated.
