The molecular g values and magnetic susceptibility anisotropies for the ethylene-HCl complex were measured using pulsed Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy in magnetic fields of 25 and 30 kG. Values obtained are g aa=0.0383(5), gbb=-0.0072(3), gcc=-0.0082(2), 2χaabbcc=-4.27(0.06), and 2χbbaacc=1.05 (0.08)×10-9 MHz/G2. Quadrupole moments for the complex are Qaa=-2.30(24)×10-26 esu cm2, Qbb=2.40(38)×10-26 esu cm2, and Q cc=-0.10(35)×10-26 esu cm2. From this data molecular quadrupole moments and other Zeeman parameters are derived for ethylene.
