Theoretical calculations have been carried out on the possible interstellar molecule pentacarbon monoxide, C5O. These calculations show that the molecule should be stable to unimolecular decomposition. The resulting predictions of rotational constants, dipole moments and vibrational frequencies are essential starting parameters for both laboratory and interstellar identification of the molecule.
