Publisher:Ohio State University
Eight isotopologues each of HGeBr and of DGeBr have been studied in natural abundance by pulsed-jet Fourier transform microwave (FTMW) spectroscopy. Neon was passed over dry ice cooled H$_3$GeBr or D$_3$GeBr and introduced into the pulsed valve of the FTMW spectrometer. The HGeBr and the DGeBr were produced in-situ with a 1000 V discharge of the gas mixture immediately following the nozzle opening. Only \it a \rm -type transitions can be observed from 5 - 25 GHz; K$_a$ = 0 transitions for the HGeBr and K$_a$ = 0 and 1 transitions for the DGeBr isotopologues. The structure and bonding of the molecule will be discussed.
