1 Fourier transform spectra and inverted torsional structure for a CH 3 bending fundamental of CH 3 OH R.M. Lees, LiHong Xu, Anna K. Kristoffersen, Michael Lock, B.P. Winnewisser, and J.W.C. Johns 435 Abstract: The highresolution Fourier transform spectrum of CH 3 OH has been investigated in the cm 1 CH 3 bending region, and perpendicular K = 1 subbands forming a consistent pattern have been identified with origins from 1490 to 1570 cm 1. The location of the subbands as the only significant spectral features towards the upper edge of the CH 3  bending absorption favours their assignment to the ν 4 inplane A asymmetric CH 3 bending mode. The upper state term values have been fitted to J(J + 1) powerseries expansions to obtain substate origins and effective Bvalues. The origins exhibit a linear Kdependence as well as the normal variation with K 2. The mean effective Bvalue of 0.82 cm 1 is higher than that of the ground state, consistent with a bending vibration. The pattern of Kreduced torsion vibration energies is anomalous. It appears to be inverted relative to the customary picture for n = 0 torsional levels, in agreement with a recent prediction, but has unusual periodicity significantly different from the ground state. A simple Fourier cosine series model for the energy curves gives a vibrational band origin of cm 1 for this CH 3 bending mode, close to the best current calculated value for ν 4.

2 436 Can J. Phys Vol. 79, Introduction torsion n = 0, en accord avec de récentes prédictions, mais avec une périodicité inattendue significativement différente de celle du fondamental. Une simple analyse de Fourier en cosinus pour les courbes d énergie donne une origine de la bande de vibration à 1477,6 cm 1 pour ce mode de flexion CH3, proche de la meilleure valeur calculée pour ν 4. [Traduit par la Rédaction] In the last few years, significant progress has been achieved in analysis of the torsion rotation structure of highresolution infrared (IR) absorption spectra of CH 3 OH in the cm 1 region containing the CH 3 rocking and OHbending fundamental bands [1,2], and also in the 3 µm region containing the CH and OHstretching fundamentals [3,4]. The present work is the first phase of a highresolution investigation of the cm 1 region in which the CH 3 bending fundamentals are located. At low resolution, as shown in Fig. 1, the CH 3 OH IR absorption extending above the strong COstretching band to about 1600 cm 1 is broad and relatively weak and, despite numerous studies, information on the exact locations and detailed structures of absorption bands in this region has been sparse [5,6]. At high resolution, in contrast, the spectrum springs to life with a wealth of detail, and many clear line series become apparent whose lower levels can be confidently assigned from groundstate combination differences [2]. However, this region contains six vibrational fundamentals and numerous torsional combination bands, with a network of interactions coupling and mixing the modes. Thus, although the energies of the upper levels of the observed IR subbands can be accurately determined, the problem of correctly labelling their vibrational parentage from the complex mixture of interacting states is a challenging one and many uncertainties still remain [7]. In this situation, one must proceed spectroscopically by continuing to build a detailed map of the torsion rotation energy manifold in the excited vibrational region to seek systematic patterns that can be related to specific modes. A number of recent developments in the highresolution vibrational spectroscopy of methanol have provided particular motivation for a study of the CH 3 bending fundamentals. In 1997, the first clear sign for methanol of a major breakdown in the traditional picture of effective 0nedimensional torsional Hamiltonians for the excited vibrational states surfaced with the discovery of an inverted torsional energy pattern for the ν 2 asymmetric A CHstretching mode of CH 3 OH [3]. (There had been some earlier indications of anomalous structure for the CD 3 rocking mode of 13 CD 3 OH [8].) Subsequently, in 1998, inversion was reported by Wang and Perry [9] for the ν 9 A asymmetric CH stretch. They showed that this unexpected inverted torsional structure arose naturally in a localmode internal coordinate picture, and conjectured that it represented a general phenomenon that would be observable for other vibrational fundamentals over a wide class of torsional molecules. Indeed, an inverted torsional pattern was observed shortly afterwards in 1999 for a quite different mode of vibration, namely, the ν 11 A outofplane CH 3 rock [1]. Around the same period, theoretical investigations by Halonen and Quack and their coworkers [10 12] were showing that the 3 µm CHstretching region of the spectrum would be complicated by strong coupling among the CH 3 bending overtones and the CHstretching modes, increasing the need for better understanding of the torsion rotation structure of the bending fundamentals. Very recently, abinitiobased localmode calculations have been performed for the torsional patterns of the methylbending modes [13]; an inverted structure is predicted for the ν 4 A and ν 10 A asymmetric bends and normal structure for the ν 5 A symmetric bend, but with quite different torsional E A splittings. Thus, our principal aims in undertaking an investigation of the cm 1 Fourier transform (FTIR) spectrum of CH 3 OH were (i) to analyze the torsion rotation structure of this region in detail to seek to identify the bending fundamentals and look for inverted torsional energy patterns to test the above predictions [13]; (ii) to determine accurate vibrational frequencies for the bending fundamentals to provide a better

The inset highlights the complex region from 1100 to 1650 cm 1 containing the six CH 3 rocking, OHbending, and CH 3  bending fundamentals plus numerous torsional combination bands.

This latter spectral region is currently of considerable astrophysical interest due to progress in IR observations of methanol as a major component of ice mantles in both interstellar dust grains [15] and comets [16]. The present paper describes our current progress in the FTIR spectral analysis in assigning a consistent group of subbands with origins towards the upper edge of the CH 3 bending spectral region in Fig. 1. The pattern of the Kreduced torsional energy curves for these subbands shows them to be clearly related and thus belonging to the same vibrational mode. However, the torsional pattern is distinctly anomalous. It indeed appears to be inverted as predicted [13], providing further support for the generality of this behaviour, but has an unusual Kperiodicity very different from that of the ground vibrational state. The paper is set out as follows. In Sect. 2, the experimental conditions for the recording of the FTIR spectra are outlined briefly. The subband assignments and origin wave numbers are presented in Sect. 3, along with excited substate origin energies and effective Bvalues obtained by fitting the upper state term values to series expansions in powers of J(J + 1). In Sect. 4, the pattern of the Kreduced torsion vibration energy curves and the results of fitting these to a simple Fourier model are discussed. In Sect. 5, localized perturbations observed for two of the subbands are described. The vibrational identity of the assigned subbands is then considered in Sect. 6, followed by concluding remarks in Sect. 7.

Experimental aspects K K A E 1 E The FTIR spectrum of CH 3 OH in the bending region was initially recorded from cm 1 at a resolution of cm 1 on the modified Bomem DA3.002 Fourier transform spectrometer then in the Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics at the National Research Council of Canada. The path length was 2.0 m in 4 transits of a 0.5 m White cell, the sample pressure was 540 mtorr (1 Torr = Pa) at room temperature, and 100 scans were coadded. Subsequently, the spectrum was recorded again at NRC at cm 1 resolution from cm 1 at 8.0 m path length and a pressure of 500 mtorr, with 56 scans coadded. This spectrum was calibrated using internal water impurity lines as reference standards [17], and was the workhorse for the initial classification of lines into subbranches. More recently, the spectrum was obtained from cm 1 at cm 1 resolution on the Bruker IFS 120 instrument at JustusLiebigUniversität, Giessen, at a path length of 16.3 m and three different pressures to accentuate different classes of feature. Runs were carried out at room temperature with 250 scans averaged at a mean pressure of 2.6 mbar (2.0 Torr), 321 scans at 0.25 mbar (190 mtorr), and 104 scans at mbar (53 mtorr). Calibration of the spectra was again checked against internal H 2 O standards [17]. Relative to the earlier NRC recording, the peaks in the 0.25 mbar spectrum were somewhat sharper and stronger with a better signal/noise (S/N) ratio, hence the final wave numbers were taken from this spectrum with an uncertainty estimated at ± cm 1 for unblended lines. 3. Subband assignments and powerseries expansions In the initial phase of this work, a substantial number of series of related lines with uniform spacing were identified in the spectrum, corresponding to R or Q subbranches of a particular vibrational band. The second differences of the lines in each series were positive, with the Q subbranches shading to higher frequency, indicating an increase in the Bvalue consistent with a bending vibration. We employed a computer spreadsheet for each series to monitor the trends and allow convenient extrapolation with increasing J. Then, with use of accurate groundstate energies [18,19] and educated guesses about the rotational quantum numbers, we were able to link R and Q subbranch partners through groundstate combination differences and establish the full torsion rotation labelling of the lower states of the subbands. Here, we will adopt the common E(nτK, J ) v T S notation for a vibration torsion rotation energy level, in which n is the torsional quantum number, τ is Dennison s energy curve index [20] related to the torsional symmetry, K is the quantum number for the acomponent of the overall rotational angular momentum J, v labels the vibrational state, and T S is the A, E 1,orE 2 torsional symmetry [21].

In this work, we are concerned principally with ach 3 bending vibrational state, which we will denote as v = bend. The COstretching state is denoted as v = co, and the ground state asv=gr. Using the above approach, we have so far identified 24 bending subbands for the n = 0 torsional ground state and one tentatively for the n = 1 excited state. All of the assigned CH 3 bending subbands correspond to K =+1 perpendicular transitions on the basis of their subbranch starting J values and relative intensity patterns. Approximate extrapolated J = 0 subband origins are given in Table 1 to illustrate their locations, which are quite widely distributed across the spectrum as expected for K = 1 transitions. We note that although the associated K = 1 subband wave numbers can be accurately

This intensity anomaly is quite puzzling. Next, we determined upperstate term values by adding the appropriate groundstate energies as tabulated by Moruzzi et al. [18] to the subband IR wave numbers. We then calculated hypothetical J = 0 origins and effective Bvalues for the upper CH 3 bending substates by leastsquares fitting the term values to series expansions in powers of J(J + 1), E(nτK, J ) bend = W bend + B bend eff J(J + 1) D bend J 2 (J + 1) 2 + H bend J 3 (J + 1) (1) where the substate origin W bend, effective Bvalue Beff bend, and higher order expansion coefficients D bend, H bend... are all phenomenological parameters dependent on the particular (nτk) bend CH 3  bending substate. In the fits, term values were weighted by the inverse squares of the corresponding IR wavenumber accuracies, estimated as ± cm 1 for wellresolved lines and ±0.002 cm 1 for blended lines. Several subbands displayed J localized perturbations, hence the perturbed lines were zeroweighted. In Table 2, we present the J = 0 substate origins and effective Bvalues obtained in the fitting, with standard deviations in parentheses. The A + and A term values were fitted separately for the (013) and (034) substates, but the A ± origins and Bvalues agree to within their uncertainties as they should. The typical representative value of Beff bend is 0.82 cm 1. The fact that this is higher than the groundstate value of cm 1 is indicative of a bending mode. The overall standard deviations of the fits given in the last column of Table 2 are reasonably close to the expected statistical value of 1.0 except for the K = 9 E 1 and E 2 substates. For the latter, there appear to be significant perturbations to the initial lines of the K = 9 8 E 1 and E 2 subbands as well as localized resonances at higher J, causing problems for the powerseries model. The higher order parameters D, H, were generally
7 Lees et al. 441 not statistically welldetermined and have limited physical significance, so are not included in Table 2. Fuller details of the subband wave numbers, upper state term values, and series expansion coefficients are available from one of us (RML) on request. 4. Kreduced energy pattern and fit to Fourier model The powerseries fitting to (1) effectively removes the J rotational dependence of the bending substate energies. In order then to separate out the Krotational dependence and isolate the torsional energy pattern in the excited vibrational state, a useful approach is to plot Kreduced energy τcurves [1,3,9,20]. The rotational contribution (A B)K 2, where (A B)is the effective Krotational constant, is subtracted from the substate origins and the resulting Kreduced energies are plotted against K for given values of τ. When this was done for the data of Table 2, using the groundstate value of 3.45 cm 1 for (A B), the resulting τcurves had some residual quadratic K 2 variation due to the vibrational change in rotational constants, but also appeared to have a significant linear shift with K, analogous to that observed for the CHstretching modes [3,9]. Therefore, we tried fitting the CH 3 bending origins to a model including both linear and quadratic Kdependence, W(nτK) bend = (A B) bend K 2 + CK bend K + Ebend v + E tor (nτk) bend (2) where CK bend is a constant, Ebend v is the purely vibrational energy, and the E tor (nτk) bend are the torsional energies. In the usual model, the Kreduced torsion vibration energies should fall on τcurves with period 3 in the variable (1 ρ)k, where ρ is a scale factor approximately equal to the ratio I a2 /I a between the axial moments of inertia of the methyl group and the whole molecule, respectively [1,20,21]. The curve for τ = 2 is shifted by 1 unit along the (1 ρ)k axis relative to τ = 1, and the curve for τ = 3 is shifted by +1 unit. Thus, the Kreduced energies can be compactly represented as a Fourier cosine series [1,9] with use of a symmetry index σ : W(nτK) bend (A B) bend K 2 CK bend K = Ebend v + E tor (nτk) bend = E bend v + a bend 0 + a bend 1 cos { [(1 ρ)k σ ] 2π 3 } { + a2 bend cos [(1 ρ)k σ ] 4π 3 } (3) where a0 bend is the torsional zeropoint energy and σ equals 0, 1, or +1 for τ = 1, 2, and 3, respectively. This model appeared to work quite well previously for the inverted torsional curves of the ν 11 outofplane rocking mode [1] as well as the CH stretches (See Fig. 1 of ref. 9). Accordingly, we set up a simple Excel spreadsheet analysis for the bending substate origins with one column for the observed origins from Table 2, one for those calculated from (2) and (3) using trial values for the molecular constants (Ev bend + a0 bend ), (A B) bend, CK bend, abend 1, a2 bend, and ρ, and a third for the (obs calc) differences. Then, we determined the optimum values for the constants by using the Excel Solver function to minimize the sum of the squares of the (obs calc) residuals. The resulting parameters are shown in Table 3 along with ground state values for comparison. The quality of the Fourier representation is displayed in Fig. 2, in which the plotted points are the Kreduced energies W(nτK) bend (A B) bend K 2 CK bend K obtained using the fitted values of (A B) bend and CK bend from Table 3, and the continuous τcurves are the torsion vibration energies drawn from the Fourier series in (3) using the Table 3 coefficients. Clearly, there are major discrepancies for this vibrational mode between the plotted points and the Fourier τcurves, with a distinctly anomalous and apparently nonuniform periodicity for the former. Thus, substantial modelling problems still need to be solved and extrapolation to the K = 0 origin of the τcurves to determine the E A splitting is highly uncertain. Nevertheless, the curves do appear to be inverted relative to the usual model, consistent with prediction for the asymmetric CH 3 bending modes [13]. Accordingly, the K = 0 E A splitting obtained from our parameters in Table 3 is negative, with a magnitude slightly less than that of the

The τcurves are inverted compared to the n = 0 picture for the conventional onedimensional torsional Hamiltonian. ground state. We note that a more rigorous leastsquares analysis for the parameters is possible, but did not feel it was warranted at this stage with the large uncertainties in the modelling. The vibrational band origin for the bending mode is given according to the above model by ω bend = (Ev bend + a0 bend ) a gr 0, where agr 0 is the groundstate torsional zeropoint energy obtained from the reported J = K = 0 term values [18]. Our result of cm 1 from Table 3 is very close to the value of cm 1 calculated for the ν 4 asymmetric bend in the recent ab initio study of Miani et al. [22]. 5. Localized perturbations in the spectrum Several of the CH 3 bending subbands show J localized perturbations, which generally arise from levelcrossing resonances with substates of other vibrational modes. So far, we have information on the interacting partner states for two of these resonances. In the first system, illustrated in the J  reduced energy diagram of Fig. 3, the (012) bend E 1 substate levels cross those of a state labelled as (n12) v E 1, which is the upper state for a relatively strong parallel K = 0 subband observed in the spectrum with its origin at cm 1. We can firmly identify the lower level of the subband from combination differences as (112) o E 1 in the ground vibrational state, but the vibration torsion identity of the upper (n12) v E 1 level has not yet been established. It lies about 63 cm 1 above the (212) co E 1 COstretching state [18], and the subband wavenumber second differences are similar to those seen for CH 3 rocking and OHbending subbands [1,2], indicating similar Bvalues. From the location of this (n12) v E 1 substate in the overall energy manifold and its rotational Bvalue, it is likely associated with either n = 2 torsionally excited CH 3 rocking or n = 1 OHbending modes. A puzzling aspect of the system is that the perturbation seems significantly larger for the (n12) v E 1 than for the (012) bend E 1 substate, particularly for J = 9, hinting that there may be other levels involved whose presence has not yet been detected. There do appear to be extra perturbationinduced lines in the spectrum connecting to the J = 10 upper levels, but the relative intensities are inconsistent and the presence of J = 10 mixing and intensity borrowing is not yet unambiguously established. The J = 10 perturbations are of the order of 0.3 cm 1 for the (012, 10) bend E 1 level and +0.4 cm 1 for the (n12, 10) v E 1 level, indicating a sizeable anharmonic interaction between the two vibrational modes.
9 Lees et al. 443 Fig. 3. J reduced energies showing a levelcrossing resonance between the (012) bend E 1 CH 3 bending substate of CH 3 OH and an (n12) v E 1 interaction partner. The term values of the latter are established from a K = 0 subband originating from the (112) o E 1 substate of the ground vibrational state. The J reduced energies are equal to the term values minus 0.8J(J + 1), where 0.8 cm 1 is the approximate Bvalue. Fig. 4. J reduced energies showing the level crossing between the (014) bend E 2 CH 3 bending and (214) co E 2 COstretching substates of CH 3 OH. The J  reduced energies are equal to the term values minus 0.803J(J + 1). The second resonance has the (014) bend E 2 bending substate interacting with the (214) co E 2 torsionally excited substate of the COstretching mode, and is shown in Fig. 4. The assignment of the parallel K = 0 (214) co E 2 subband was reported relatively recently [23]. Its lower level is established from groundstate combination differences, while the upper state energy and rotational Bvalue fit well with those for other known n = 2 COstretching subbands. The (214) co E 2 subband wavenumber second differences are strongly perturbed above J = 10, in a pattern complementary to that for the (014) (023) bend E 2 subband. For both of the interacting partner states, our assignments currently extend just up to the levelcrossing point, which is extrapolated to occur between J = 18 and 19. Thus, the difference of cm 1 between the perturbed energies of the two states at J = 18 will be close to the separation of the curves at the crossing point, equal to twice the interaction matrix element. This gives W int 0.72 cm 1 as the estimated magnitude of this torsionmediated anharmonic coupling. 6. Identity of the observed CH 3 bending mode Of the three CH 3 bending fundamentals, the ν 5 A symmetric (umbrella) bend is expected to be a parallel band and is reported to lie near 1455 cm 1 [5]. The two asymmetric bending fundamentals, ν 4 (A ) and ν 10 (A ), are both expected to be perpendicular bands with ν 4 predicted to lie near 1474 cm 1 [5]. There are some differences in earlier reported predictions for ν 10, ranging from about 1472 cm 1 [5] down to 1460 cm 1 [10]. However, a very recent high level ab initio study by Miani et al. [22] employing

Energy level and transition scheme showing CH 3 OH IR transition wave numbers and groundstate K doublet splittings (in cm 1 ) establishing the transition ordering and J = 21 doublet splitting of cm 1 for the (013) bend A substate. The A± ordering for the upper levels shown on the left is inverted relative to the K = 3 groundstate doublets, and would correspond to btype IR selection rules consistent with an A ν 4 upper state. The A± ordering on the right would correspond to ctype selection rules, consistent with an A ν 10 upper state. an anharmonic force field and including Fermi intermode coupling has given the best current predictions of , , and cm 1 for the ν 4, ν 5, and ν 10 modes, respectively. Our observed subbands are located towards the high side of the broad absorption in the CH 3 bending region shown at low resolution in Fig. 1. Above about 1525 cm 1, the spectrum is very wellresolved, and almost all of the significant lines have been assigned to our bending mode. There appears to be little possibility that another perpendicular fundamental could lie at higher wave number. In the lower regions, Fig. 1 shows a hole in the absorption just above 1440 cm 1, with a sudden spike and jump in absorption at about 1450 cm 1. At high resolution, the spectrum is indeed very quiet from cm 1, but at cm 1 there is a sudden onset of a congested Q branch shading to higher wave number, giving the abrupt rise in absorption seen in Fig. 1. The first few lines in this Q branch are strong and wellresolved, with the intensity pattern of a parallel K = 0 subbranch, and we have assigned them as K = 7A for n = 0 by identifying the associated R and P subbranches, which are much weaker. It seems definite that this Q branch belongs to the ν 5 symmetric bend from its frequency and parallel character, although we have not so far been able to identify further individual ν 5 subbands. The spectrum remains extremely crowded moving up through about 1490 cm 1, and then gradually thins out with more isolated and welldefined line series. This would be consistent with a ν 10 perpendicular band lying hidden in the 1466 cm 1 region, as ν 10 is expected to be a weak ctype fundamental. So far, however, our progress in assigning the spectral structure in the cm 1 region has been limited, due to the high line density. Overall, we believe that (i) the relatively complete assignment of all significant spectral features towards the high side of the bending absorption region and (ii) the very close agreement between the predicted ν 4 band origin of cm 1 [22] and our value of cm 1 from the Fourier fit to the substate origins, both strongly favour the identification of our observed band as the ν 4 A asymmetric bending fundamental.
11 Lees et al. 445 In principle, one other clue is available from our spectrum, but paradoxically it points more towards the opposite vibrational assignment, i.e., the ν 10 A asymmetric bend! For the (013) bend (022) bend A subband, the Kdoubling is resolved, allowing the A± transition selection rules to be checked for btype or ctype character. In Fig. 5, we show the energy level and transition diagram for the R and Qsubbranch lines accessing the J = 21 Kdoublet levels of the (013) bend upper state. To satisfy the combination relations among the IR transition wave numbers and the known groundstate Kdoublet splittings [18,19] given in Fig. 5, the IR transitions must follow the specific pattern shown, with good agreement between the two independent combination difference results of and cm 1 for the upper doublet splitting. Note that the latter is significantly larger than the corresponding groundstate J = 21 splitting of cm 1 [18]. Now, if the A± ordering for the (013) bend upper state were the same as the ground state, as shown on the righthand side of Fig. 5 with the A + level below A for K = 3, then the IR transitions would follow ctype selection rules. This would imply A symmetry for the upper state, making it the ν 10 asymmetric bend. However, asymmetry splittings are very sensitive to vibrational interactions [24] and have been found to be anomalous in a number of cases. The (013) bend (022) bend A subband in fact displays a localized perturbation around J = 14, so there is at least one unidentified state in the vicinity. Thus, we believe the picture on the lefthand side of Fig. 5 is more likely, with inverted (013) bend Kdoubling and btype IR selection rules consistent with the A symmetry of the ν 4 upper state. In future, we hope that identification of additional line series observed in the spectrum but not yet assigned will shed further light on the Kdoubling and vibrational identity questions. Further data on the transition patterns for Kdoublets would be particularly useful, hence we are actively seeking assignments of lowk Asubbands in the spectrum with resolved asymmetry splittings. 7. Discussion and conclusions In this work, we have recorded the Fourier transform spectrum of CH 3 OH at high resolution in the CH 3 bending region from cm 1 and have identified 25 K = 1 subbands of a perpendicular vibrational fundamental, which we believe to be the ν 4 (A ) asymmetric bending mode. The torsion rotation assignments of the lower levels of the subbands are firmly established through groundstate combination differences, allowing determination of the upper state term values by addition of known groundstate energies [18,19] to the experimental IR transition wave numbers. These term values have been fitted for each substate to series expansions in powers of J(J+1) to find the J independent substate origins and effective Bvalues. The substate origins have then been fitted to a model incorporating both linear and quadratic Kdependent terms and a Fourier expansion of the torsional energies, in order to examine the torsional pattern and determine the vibrational band origin. There are several interesting and sometimes anomalous aspects to this vibrational band of CH 3 OH. First of all, the Kreduced torsion vibration energy curves appear to be inverted compared to the customary onedimensional model, with the E energy below A for K = 0. However, such inversion has also been reported for the ν 2 and ν 9 CHstretching modes [3,9] and the ν 11 outofplane CH 3 rock [1], and may well be a universal phenomenon for certain excited vibrational states of torsional molecules. Secondly, only K =+1 subbands have significant intensity in the spectrum. Although we can predict the K = 1 subband wave numbers accurately through combination differences, the lines are surprisingly weak. Thirdly, the substate origins show a substantial linear shift with K, with a value of cm 1 for the shift coefficient C K comparable to that seen for the ν 9 band [9], suggesting quite strong Coriolis effects.
12 446 Can J. Phys Vol. 79, 2001 Fourth is the large apparent change from the ground state in the Kscaling factor ρ fitted to the τcurves, as seen in Table 3, along with the nonuniform period of oscillation of the Kreduced torsion vibration energies seen in Fig. 2. While the CH 3 bending motion is certainly expected to have some impact on the effective axial moments of inertia determining ρ, a change of the magnitude shown in Table 3 seems unrealistic. Thus, these anomalies in the torsional A E energy ordering, the ρ value and the energy periodicity reinforce the need to reexamine the torsion vibration Hamiltonian from the beginning in terms of a coupled torsion vibration basis. Both the location of our vibrational band at the upper edge of the CH 3 bending absorption region in Fig. 1 and the increase of effective Bvalue with vibrational excitation are consistent with this being the ν 4 (A ) asymmetric CH 3 bending mode. Our band origin of cm 1, although rather uncertain due to questions about the model, matches well with the best reported calculation of cm 1 for the ν 4 mode [22]. Although the transition pattern for the K = 3A bending levels would imply ctype (A ) IR selection rules if the Kdoublet A± ordering were the same as the ground state, indicating an alternative vibrational assignment as the ν 10 (A ) mode, we believe it more likely that the K = 3A bending doublets are inverted. However, more definitive experimental evidence is needed. There are still numerous unassigned subbranch line series in the spectrum, and we are actively seeking to identify transitions of the other asymmetric CH 3 bending partner as well as further subbands of the ν 5 symmetric bend to fill out the vibration torsion rotation energy map and resolve the CH 3 bending assignment question definitively in the near future.
