Abstract : The available data on the microwave spectra of carbon monoxide, carbon monosulfide, and silicon monoxide are critically reviewed for information applicable to radio astronomy. Molecular data such as rotational constants, centrifugal distortion parameters, dipole moments, hyperfine coupling constants, and structure are tabulated. Observed rotational transitions are presented for all measured isotopic forms of these molecules. All of the available data has been analyzed in order to predict all rotational transitions of these molecules up to 300 GHz. Error limits have been taken from the original literature for each measured transition frequency. All predicted transition frequencies are given with estimated uncertainties which represent the 90 percent confidence limit. (Author)
