3 3 Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory VSEPR

4 You know intuitively if something is symmetric but we require a precise method to describe how an object or molecule is symmetric. Definitions: – The quality of something that has two sides or halves that are the same or very close in size, shape, and position. (Webster) – When one shape becomes exactly like another if you flip, slide or turn it. (mathisfun.com) – The correspondence in size, form and arrangement of parts on opposites sides of a plane, line or point. (dictionary.com) Symmetry Elements Symmetry Operations Symmetry 4

5 Symmetry Elements – a point, line or plane with respect to which the symmetry operation is performed – is a point of reference about which symmetry operations can take place Symmetry Operations – a process that when complete leaves the object appearing as if nothing has changed (even through portions of the object may have moved). Symmetry Do Something! If A, B and C are equivalent. 5

6 Symmetry Element: Inversion Center Each atom in the molecule is moved along a straight line through the inversion center to a point an equal distance from the inversion center. For any part of an object there exists an identical part diametrically opposite this center an equal distance from it. 6

7 Symmetry Element: Axis A molecule can have more than one symmetry axis; the one with the highest n is called the principal axis. An axis around which a rotation by 360°/n results in an object indistinguishable from the original. 7

8 Symmetry Element: Plane A molecule can have more than one plane of symmetry. A plane of reflection through which an identical copy of the original is given. 8

9 Symmetry Elements Point = Center of Symmetry = 2 dimensions Line = Axis of Symmetry Plane = Plane of Symmetry = 0 dimension = 1 dimension Volume of symmetry? 9

10 Symmetry elements – Axis – Mirror plane – Center of inversion Symmetry Operations – Identity (E) – Proper Rotation (C n ) – Reflection (  ) – Inversion (i) – Improper Rotation (S n ) Elements and Operations 10

11 Leaves the entire molecule unchanged. All objects have identity. Abbreviated E, from the German 'Einheit' meaning unity. E Identity (E) ~ doing nothing! 11

12 Proper Rotation (C n ) Rotation about an axis by 360°/n C 2 rotates 180°, C6 rotates 60°. Each rotation brings is indistinguishable from the original. C5C5 C2C2 C n m : apply a C n rotation m times 12

13 Rotations (C n ) C n m : apply a C n rotation m times 13 360°/6 = 60°

14 More than 1 C n BH 3 Highest n = principle axis (z-direction) benzene C 6, C 3, C 2 6 x ⊥ C 2 14 C 3 3 x ⊥ C 2

15 Reflection (  ) Take each atom in the molecule and move it toward the reflection plane along a line perpendicular to that plane. Continue moving the atom through the plane to a point equidistant from the plane on the opposite side of the plane 15

16  v = through atom vertical plane  d = between atoms/bonds dihedral planes  h = perpendicular to the primary rotation axis Reflection (  ) Multiple Reflection Planes benzene 3 x  v 3 x  d 1 x  h 16

17 Reflection (  ) Multiple Reflection Planes  v or  xz C2C2 1 2  v ’ or  yz 17

18 Inversion (i) Each atom in the molecule is moved along a straight line through the inversion center to a point an equal distance from the inversion center. 18

19 Inversion (i) Does not require an atom at the center of inversion. C60 Benzene 19

20 Rotation about an axis by 360°/n followed by reflection through the plane perpendicular to the rotation axis. Labeled as an S n axis. Improper Rotation (S n ) S n m : apply a C n rotation then reflection m times 20

21 Improper Rotation (S n ) S n m : apply a C n rotation then reflection m times Allene B2H4B2H4 21

22 Improper Rotation (S n ) S n m : apply a C n rotation then reflection m times n = even 22

23 Improper Rotation (S n ) S n m : apply a C n rotation then reflection m times n = odd 23

24 – Identity (E) – Proper Rotation (C n ) – Reflection (  ) – Inversion (i) – Improper Rotation (S n ) Symmetry Operations 24

25 Side note: Crystals Molecular Symmetry Crystallographic Symmetry Center of Mass Unchanged Identity Rotation Reflection Inversion Additional Symmetry Operations 25

26 Screw Symmetry Glide-reflection Symmetry The combination of reflection and translation. The combination of rotation and translation. Crystallographic Symmetry Operations 26

27 Groups of Symmetry Operations Many molecules have 2 or more symmetry operations/elements. Not all symmetry operations occur independently. Molecules can be classified and grouped based on their symmetry. Molecules with similar symmetry elements and operations belong to the same point group. Called point group because symmetry operations are related to a fixed point in the molecule (the center of mass). 27

28 Point Groups Infinite number of molecules, finite number of point groups. 28

89 A matrix is a rectangular array of numbers, or symbols for numbers. These elements are put between square brackets. Generally a matrix has m rows and n columns: m Rows n columns Square matrix, m=n 89 Matrices

90 Method to simplify a matrix. The character of a matrix is the sum of its diagonal elements. square matrix 90 Trace/Character

91 Unit Matrix/Identity: All elements in the diagonal are 1 and the rest are zero. Column Matrix: used to represent a point or a vector. The Identity Matrix (E) 91 Special Matricies

92 Addition: Subtraction: 92 Matrix Algebra For two matricies with equal dimensions: Multiply by a constant:

93 93 Matrix Multiplication If two matrices are to be multiplied together they must be conformable; i.e., the number of columns in the first (left) matrix must be the same as the number of rows in the second (right) matrix. To get the first member of the first row, all elements of the first row of the first matrix are multiplied by the corresponding elements of the first column of the second matrix and the results are added. To get the second member of the first row, all elements of the first row of the first matrix are multiplied by the corresponding members of the second column of the second matrix and the results are added, and so on.

94 94 Matrix Multiplication If two matrices are to be multiplied together they must be conformable; i.e., the number of columns in the first (left) matrix must be the same as the number of rows in the second (right) matrix. To get the first member of the first row, all elements of the first row of the first matrix are multiplied by the corresponding elements of the first column of the second matrix and the results are added. To get the second member of the first row, all elements of the first row of the first matrix are multiplied by the corresponding members of the second column of the second matrix and the results are added, and so on.

96 Non-square matrix- The number of columns in the first (left) matrix must be the same as the number of rows in the second (right) matrix. 96 Matrix Multiplication 2 columns 2 Rows columns of a = rows of b 3x2 times 2x3 = 3x3

97 Non-square matrix- The number of columns in the first (left) matrix must be the same as the number of rows in the second (right) matrix. 97 Matrix Multiplication 2 columns 2 Rows columns of a = rows of b 3x2 times 2x3 = 3x3

98 98 Matrix Multiplication: Vectors Identity Matrix (E) vector

99 99 Inverse Matrices If two square matrices A and B multiply together, and A B = E then B is said to the inverse of A (written A -1 ). B is also the inverse of A. A B E aka A -1 Rules that govern groups: 4)For every element in the group there exists an inverse.

101 Block Diagonal Matrix Row 1 and so on… Full Matrix MultiplicationBlock Multiplication Important in reducing matrix representations. 101

102 102 Direct Sum The direct sum is very different from ordinary matrix addition since it produces a matrix of higher dimensionality. A direct sum of two matrices of orders n and m is performed by placing the matrices to be summed along the diagonal of a matrix of order n+m and filling in the remaining elements with zeroes = ⊕ ⊕ Γ (5) (g) = Γ (2) (g) ⊕ Γ (2) (g) ⊕ Γ (1) (g)

103 103 Direct Product The direct product of two matrices (given the symbol ⊗ ) is a special type of matrix product that generates a matrix of higher dimensionality. 2 x 2 ⊗ 2 x 2 = 4 x 4
