A Fourier transform microwave spectrometer has been used to make high resolution measurements on the J = 1–0 rotational transition for 11 isotopomers of SnO. For the most abundant isotopomer the transition was observed in the v = 0, 1, 2, and 3 states. Magnetic hyperfine structure was observed in the transitions for 115 Sn 16 O, 117 Sn 16 O and 119 Sn 16 O. The nuclear spin-rotation constant C I (Sn) has been determined for these isotopomers for the first time and these constants have been related to nmr shielding parameters. A multi-isotopomer analysis, including data from the 120 Sn 17 O and 120 Sn 18 O isotopomers, has been performed on the data. Born–Oppenheimer breakdown parameters were required in the fit and these parameters have been compared to those for the other Sn-chalcogenides.
