Abstract

The C-Cl stretching fundamental of $HC^{35}$Cl in its ground, $^{1}$ A^{\prime}, state has been detected by transient diode laser absorption spectroscopy. The radical was formed by the excimer laser photolysis of $CHBr_{2}Cl$ at 193nm in a continuous flow system. The band has a-type character and the fundamental vibrational frequency is 811.596 $cm^{-1}$. No evidence was found for perturbations in either the ground or vibrationally excited levels, implying that the excited $\bar{a}\;{^{3}} A^{\prime\prime}$ state lies above the CCl stretching level in HCCl. The observed vibration-rotation transitions were well fit by a standard asymmetric rotor Hamiltonian model. There is a decrease in the A rotational constant on vibrational excitation, suggesting some bend-stretch coupling is present.
