The second overtone band 3ν1 of sulfur dioxide has been studied for the first time with high resolution rotation-vibration spectroscopy. About 3000 transitions involving about 900 upper state energy levels with Jmax. = 66 and Kamax. = 24 have been assigned to the 3ν1 band. In the analysis, an effective Hamiltonian taking into account accidental interactions between the vibrational states (3 0 0), (2 2 0), and (0 4 1) was used. The Watson operator in A-reduction and Ir representation was used in the diagonal blocks of the Hamiltonian. As the result of analysis a set of parameters reproducing the initial experimental data with the rms = 0.00028 cm-1 was obtained.
