    Rotationally resolved dispersed fluorescene spectra from the 61 level of benzene have been used to probe intramolecular vibrational energy redistribution in the ground electronic state. The level 12 (Evib=1986 cm-1) and 13 (Evib=2979 cm-1) are observed to be each coupled to a single close-lying level. We propose that the pertubing levels are 52 in the case of 12 and 5211 in the case of 13. The coupling constant k1155 has been determined to be 1.4 cm-1.
