Gottlieb, C.A., E.W. Gottlieb, P. Thaddeus, and J.M. Vrtilek, 1986: The rotational spectrum of the C3H radical. Astrophys. J., 303, 446-450, doi:10.1086/164089.

The rotational spectrum of the recently discovered C3H radical in both fine-structure ladders of its electronic ground state (X2Pi) with lambda doubling and hyperfine structure has been determined to high accuracy, and the strongest transitions at frequencies less than 376 GHz are tabulated. Recently published spectroscopic constants derived from astronomical and laboratory data (Gottlieb et al., 1985) allowed calculation of the spectrum to a radial velocity of 0.4 km/s at frequencies less than 200 GHz, the uncertainties above being somewhat larger. The hyperfine constants of the sequence of four hydrocarbon radicals CH, C2H, C3H, and C4H are briefly described.
