From the moments of inertia of six different isotopic species of methyl alcohol as obtained from the J=0→ 1 rotational lines a complete structural determination of methyl alcohol has been made. The structural parameters so obtained are the following : dOH=0.956± 0.015 A, dCO=1.427± 0.007 A, dCH=1.096 ± 0.010 A, ∈ HCH=109° 2'± 45', ∈ COH=108° 52'± 2° , and the distance of the oxygen atom from the symmetry axis of the CH3 group=0.083± 0.005 A.
