The 0–2, 0–3 and 0–4 bands of the 3A system in the ordinary CO molecule have been reanalysed. The constants describing the ∏=0 level of thec 3π state were calculated. In this state are found considerable spin splitting and a strong perturbation induced by an unknown3 π state. For the latter some constants have been calculated.
