  • Polyatomic molecules can exist as nuclear spin isomers. For example, the ortho and para hydrogen spin isomers are characterized by different values of specific heat, boiling point, heat of vapor formation, and so forth ([1][1]). Hydrogen has been the only substance whose spin modifications are well
