ENNUI

According to the folks at Merriam Webster:

Definition of ENNUI: a feeling of weariness and dissatisfaction : boredom

Examples of ENNUI:

<the kind of ennui that comes from having too much time on one’s hands and too little will to find something productive to do>

When the antiproton was discovered … it sent a wave of ennui through the physics community. Not that its discovery was unimportant, but on the basis of Dirac’s theory, everybody expected it. —Roger G. Newton, The Truth of Science, 1997
