Title:The Millimeter/submillimeter Spectrum Of Diacetyl
Author(s):Rebelsky, Jonathan
Contributor(s):Widicus Weaver, Susanna L.; Schultz, Chase P
Subject(s):Rotational structure/frequencies
Abstract:Diacetyl is a common food flavoring, used most commonly in microwave popcorn. In addition to being a molecule of culinary significance, diacetyl is also a molecule of atmospheric interest, as it is an important source of \chem{HO_x} in the atmosphere. Of specific interest to astronomy, diacetyl was recently made in an interstellar ice analogue. Despite the number of studies on its vibrational characteristics, there have been no rotational studies done on this molecule. In this talk we will present the experimental results and preliminary assignment of the diacetyl rotational spectrum from 20-1000 GHz. This spectrum will allow for the potential detection of this molecule in the interstellar medium.
