The rotational spectrum of p -H2--AgCl and o -H2--AgCl has been measured for the first time using a Balle-Flygare type Fourier transform microwave (FTMW) spectrometer. \frac(B+C)2's, nuclear quadrupole coupling constants, and centrifugal distortion constants have been determined for multiple isotopologues of both species while spin-spin coupling constants have also been determined for at least one isotopologue of the o -H2 species. Substantial changes in the eQq value from the monomer\footnoteK. D. Hensel, C. Styger, W. Jäger, A. J. Merer, and M. C. L. Gerry, J. Chem. Phys. , \textbf99(1993) 3320. occur at the Cl nucleus upon complexation with the H2 and will be discussed. Experimental r0's for the H2 C.O.M. distance to Ag and Ag distance to Cl are 1.809(2)Å and 2.2656(2)Å , respectively, for the p -H2 species and will be compared to theory. Quantum chemical calculations were performed with an APFD density functional and MP2 with an aug-cc-pVQZ basis set for the hydrogen and chlorine with the effective core potential ECP28MDF\AVQZ, for the Ag and will be presented.
