Welch Foundation.Author Institution: Department of Chemistry, Rice UniversityThe microwave spectrum of $\begin{array}{c}H\\ H_{2} C:C\cdot C\cdot OH\\ H_{3}\end{array}$ has been studied in the region 7-35 KMc. The spectrum is rich and complicated indicating the possibility of two or more conformational isomers. At present the form which is gauche about the C-C bond with H (of OH) in a trans-position has been assigned and is probably predominant at $-78^{\circ}C$. Both a and c type transitions have been assigned for the ground and first excited states of this isomer. Quantitative measurements of the Stark effect have yielded the values of the components of the dipole moment as $\mu_{a}=1.4\pm 0.02 D, \mu_{b}=0-0.07 D, \mu_{0}=0.644\pm 0.002 D$
