## WAVEGUIDE CHIRPED-PULSE FOURIER TRANSFORM MICROWAVE (CP-FTMW) SPECTRUM OF ALLYL CHLORIDE

### Abstract

Author Institution: Division of Natural Sciences, New College of Florida, Sarasota, FL 34243The microwave spectrum of allyl chloride at 0~$^irc}$C was measured from 8.7--18.3~GHz with waveguide chirped-pulse Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy (CP-FTMW). The spectrum consists of contributions from $^{35}$Cl and $^{37}$Cl isotopomers of the \textit{cis} and \textit{skew} isomers. As the vibrational partition function for each of these conformers is approximately 4, the microwave spectrum contains a few thousand transitions with intensities above a 3:1 S/N ratio after a few hours of averaging. We will discuss our progress on the analysis of this spectrum, which has been aided with an automated strategy to find candidate assignments
