A high-resolution study of hyperfine splitting in the microwave spectrum of methanimine has yielded the following values (in MHz) for 14N hyperfine constants: χaa -0·898(8), χbb -2·693(8), χcc 3·591(8), Ca -0·0495(47), Cb -0·0097(27), Cc -0·0012(24). The localized theory for calculation of the magnetic hyperfine constants appears generally to overestimate Cc by an order of magnitude for molecules structurally similar to methanimine.
