No previous high-resolution spectra have been recorded for this semistablepalindromic molecule. On the basis of the 2:1 intensity alternation in the rotational lines caused bynitrogen nuclear spin statistics, the ONCCNO molecule appears to be linear. A quasilinear structure,however, cannot be ruled out at this stage of the analysis. The ␯4 and ␯5 fundamental modes at2246.040 55͑23͒ cmϪ1 and 1258.475 30͑11͒ cmϪ1 have been analyzed to give ground staterotational constants of B ϭ 0.042 202 10͑96͒ cmϪ1 and D0 8.77͑70͒ϫ10Ϫ10 cmϪ1. By fixing the CN and NO bond lengths to 1.1923 and 1.1730 Å, respectively, the C–C bond length wasdetermined to be 1.3329 Å using the B0 value. This short C–C bond length is thus similar to thatobserved for a carbon–carbon double bond. 1995 American Institute of Physics. INTRODUCTION

The ONCCNO molecule was generated in situ using the same method as described by Pasinszki and Westwood.8Briefly, the thermolysis of dichloroglyoxime in a quartz tube͑8 mm i.d. by 15 cm͒ heated to 550 °C gives a good yield ofONCCNO plus HCl with only trace amounts of the sideproducts, NO, CO, CO2, and HNCO.
