Abstract : All available data on the microwave spectra of carbonyl sulfide and hydrogen cyanide are critically reviewed and tabulated. Molecular data such as rotational constants, centrifugal distortion constants, dipole moments, hyperfine coupling constants, and structural parameters are also tabulated. All rotational transitions from 100 MHz to 300 GHz that are deemed likely to be of interest to radio astronomers are calculated and tabulated along with their estimated 95 percent confidence limits. Microwave measurements are tabulated for most isotopic species and for many of the lower vibrational states. For both carbonyl sulfide and hydrogen cyanide a bibliography is given which includes nearly all the spectroscopic work reported in the literature. For each molecule a bibliography of related astrophysical papers is also given. (Author)
