Abstract: The microwave spectrum of methyl formate has been observed in the 7-200 GHz region, and new 437 lines have been assigned to the first excited A torsional substate. Both excited state lines and ground state lines reported previously were analyzed simultaneously on the basis of an internal axis method Hamiltonian. A total of 3514 lines were fitted to a 10th-order reduced Hamiltonian model involving 67 molecular parameters to a 1s standard deviation of 179 kHz.
Keywords: Methyl formate; HCOOCH3; microwave spectrum; rotational transition; internal axis method; interstellar molecule
