Abstract

The rotational lines of the H2-HCN cluster containing the ortho and para hydrogen molecules were observed using millimeter-wave spectroscopy with a pulsed supersonic jet technique. The distance between the center of mass of H2 and HCN was found to be 3.9613 Å for the ortho species and 4.229 A ̊ for the para species. Results showed that H2 is attached to hydrogen end of HCN in para species and nitrogen end of HCN in the ortho species.
