The three hyperfine components of the rotational transition of have been resolved in laboratory leading to a value of the quadrupole coupling constant eQq of 4.595 MHz, which is far below the previous estimate of an upper limit of 12 MHz by Guélin et al. [CITE]. The (1-0) spectrum has been observed toward the "molecular peak"of L1544 and analyzed on the basis of the laboratory hyperfine frequencies.
