Abstract:\chem{S_2Cl_2} is a candidate molecule for the detection of \textit{ortho-para} transition, because the Cl atoms on the skewed position from the rotational principle axes give large off-diagonal terms in the quadrupole interaction, which can mix \textit{ortho} and \textit{para} states. In order to estimate the \textit{ortho-para} mixing in a hyperfine-resolved rotational state, pure rotational transitions were measured by millimeter-wave spectroscopy using two different experimental set-ups. The transitions from the term value around 20 K was measured with a supersonic jet and those around 200 K were measured with a dry ice cooled gas cell. Hundreds of peaks were assigned for the naturally abundant S$_{2}$$^{35}$Cl$_{2}$ and S$_{2}$$^{35}$Cl$^{37}$Cl isotopic species, and the rotational molecular constants including the fourth-order and sixth-order centrifugal distortion constants were determined. The hyperfine structures were partly resolved in some \textit{Q}-branch transitions and those spectral patterns were well reproduced with the hyperfine constants determined by the previous FTMW spectroscopy in the cm-wave region\footnote{Mizoguchi et al., J. Mol. Spectrosc. 250,86-97(2008)}. With the new molecular constants determined in this study and the previous hyperfine constants, it becomes possible to predict a more reliable \textit{ortho-para} mixing ratio and to narrow down the possible candidate transitions in the mm-wave region for the detection of \textit{ortho-para} transition.
