A parallel type band of methyl acetylene in the photographic infrared has recently been investigated Herzberg, Patat and Verleger (1) who were able to obtain from it an accurate value of the large moment of inertia of the molecule. Assuming that all parameters except the C-C single bond distance have the value which have been found in other molecules they were obliged to conclude that this distance is about 1.463 Å. This conclusion seems rather remarkable since the C-C single bond bond distance has been found to be approximately 1.54 Å in a number of molecules, and it seemed worth while to check the result.
