The npsigma(1)Sigma(u)(+) and nppi(1)Pi(u) states in H-2 have been selectively excited using monoenergetic synchrotron light in the range 14.4-15.5 eV and the subsequent emission was observed using a grating spectrometer. In total 22 well separated bands of the npsigma(1)Sigma(u)(divided by) and nppi(1)Pi(u) to E,F (1)Sigma(g)(divided by) systems (n = 3-7) were observed and rotationally analysed. The intensities of the P and R branches relative to the Q branch vary strongly in the nppi to EF bands confirming the existence of predissociations of a large number of nppi(1)Pi(divided by) levels. Energy levels of the E,F (1) Sigma(g)(divided by) state (v(EF) = 0, 1, 3, 6-10) are obtained which confirm earlier determinations from other H-2 experiments.
