Laser induced fluorescence, in the presence of a static electric field, was used to record the band system of a molecular beam sample of magnesium isocyanide. A solid magnesium rod in the presence of an acetonitrile/argon supersonic expansion was ablated to produce molecules. The permanent electric dipole moment magnitudes were found to be 5.308(75) D and 6.138(46) D.
