Rotational transitions 101→000, 2 12→111, 211→212, and 321→322 of 1,1 difluoroethylene were studied using a molecular beam maser spectrometer. Emission transitions were observed with 6 kHz linewidth (FWHM) and hyperfine structure due to fluorine and hydrogen interactions was resolved. The diagonal elements of the fluorine spin-rotation tensor are Maa=-13.4±3.6 kHz, Mbb=-10.94±0. 68 kHz and Mcc=-6.06 ±0.68 kHz. This data is used to determine paramagnetic contributions to the fluorine chemical shift tensor. Analysis of the data yielded line centers for the rotational transitions of 15774348 ±3 kHz for 101→-000, 26465055±5 for 212→111, and 14419906±3 kHz for 3 21→322, and 15250615±3 kHz for 2 11→212. Results of semiempirical calculations of diamagnetic contributions to the shielding tenors are presented for CH 2CF2 and other molecules. Comparisons of total shielding tensors are made for related molecules.
