Evans, N.J., II, and M.L. Kutner, 1976: H2CO emission at 2 millimeters in dark clouds. Astrophys. J., 204, L131-L134, doi:10.1086/182071.

The 212→111 transition of H2CO at 2 mm wavelength has been detected at three positions in dark clouds. This confirms predictions based on 2 cm H2CO absorption studies. The 2 mm radiation temperatures, together with the 2 cm data and recently computed cross sections for H2-H2CO collissions, are used to deduce cloud conditions. These in turn are used to predict the strengths of emission lines from CS and HCN.
