Abstract : The magnetic properties of carbonyl sulfide have been studied in the past by various authors using both conventional microwave spectroscopy and molecular beam electric resonance. The molecular beam techniques give very precise results but are difficult and relatively inflexible and it has been found possible to study a much wider variety of molecules using microwave techniques. As part of a program to improve the microwave method so that it might produce data of a similar degree of precision as those obtained using most beam techniques, the molecular O(16)C(12)S(32) has been restudied, because of its results. In the experiment both the molecular g-factor and the molecular magnetic susceptibility anisotropy of OCS have been evaluated with considerable precision. (Author)
