Five bands of the B̃-X̃ excitation spectrum of 1-propoxy had their rotational and spin-rotation structure resolved and analyzed. As such, the determined rotational constants are consistent with significant changes in the C-O bonding between the B̃ and X̃ state. It is found that the observed spin-rotation tensor components can be predicted semiquantitatively from those of ethoxy using a simple model, which assumes the wave function of the "unpaired" electron is similar for the homologous series.
