The gaseous MgH2 molecule has been discovered in an electrical discharge inside a high temperature furnace. The vibration–rotation emission spectrum of 24MgH2 was recorded with a Fourier transform spectrometer and the antisymmetric stretching mode (3) was detected near 1589 cm–1. In addition, three hot bands involving 2 and 3 were found and rotationally analyzed. The MgH2 molecule has a linear structure with an R0 Mg–H bond distance of 1.703 327(3) Å.
