The rotational transitions of 3,4-dihydro-1,2-pyran in the ground state and six vibrationally excited states have been assigned. The rotational constants for the ground state (A = 5198.1847(24), B = 4747.8716(24) and C = 2710.9161(24) have been derived by fitting μa, μb and μc-type transitions. The dipole moment was determined from Stark displacement measurements to be 1.400(8) D with its principal axis components |μa| =1.240(2), |μb| = 0.588(10) and |μc| = 0.278(8) D. A model calculation to

The average intensity ratio gives vibrational separations between the ground and excited states of the ring-bending and ring-twisting modes of ~ 178 and ~ 277 cm-1 respectively.
