The electric dipole moment of bromofluoromethane, CH279BrF, has been determined with a good accuracy by observing the second order ΔMJ= 0 Stark spectrum of the J = 32,1← 31,2, J = 52,3← 51,4and J = 52,4← 51,5rotational transitions. In addition, the equilibrium geometry and dipole moment have been evaluated using highly accurate ab initio calculations. By comparing the experimental [μa= 0.3466(11) D and μb= 1.704(26) D] and theoretical [μa= -0.339 D and μb= -1.701 D] dipole moment components, a very good agreement has been found. © 2006 Elsevier Inc.
