47
Chapter 6-47 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech Use Reduction Formula : to show that here we have: 3N = 3A1 + A2 + 2B1 + 3B2 This was obtained using 3N cartesian coordinate vectors. Using 3N (translation + rotation + vibration) vectors would have given the same answer. But we are only interested in the 3N-6 vibrations. The irreducible representations for the rotation and translation vectors are listed in the character tables, e.g. for C2v,

48
Chapter 6-48 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech T = A1 + B1 + B2 R = A2 + B1 + B2 i.e. T+R = A1 + A2 + 2B1 + 2B2 But vib = 3N - T+R Therefore vib = 2A1 + B2 i.e. of the 3 (= 3N-6) vibrations for a molecule like H2O, two have A1 and one has B2 symmetry

49

To be more specific we need now to use the INTERNAL COORDINATE method.

52
Chapter 6-52 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech INTERNAL COORDINATE METHOD We used one example of this earlier - when we used the "bond vectors" to obtain a representation corresponding to bond stretches. We will give more examples of these, and also the other main type of vibration - bending modes. For stretches we use as internal coordinates changes in bond length, for bends we use changes in bond angle.

53
Chapter 6-53 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech Let us return to the C2v molecule: Use as bases for stretches: r1, r2. Use as basis for bend: C2v E C2 xz yz stretch bend N.B. Transformation matrices for stretch : E, yz:C2, xz : i.e. only count UNSHIFTED VECTORS (each of these +1 to )

54
Chapter 6-54 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech bend is clearly irreducible, i.e. A1. stretch reduces to A1 + B2 We can therefore see that the three vibrational modes of H2O divide into two stretches (A1 + B2) and one bend (A1). We will see later how this information helps in the vibrational assignment.

55
Chapter 6-55 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech Other examples: Bases for stretches: r1, r2, r3. Bases for bends: 1, 2, 3. C3v E 2C3 3 stretch bend Reduction formula stretch = A1 + E bend = A1 + E (Remember vib (above) = 2A1 + 2E)

Td E 8C3 3C2 6S4 6 d stretch bend Reduction formula stretch = A1 + T2 bend = A1 + E + T2 But 3N (above) = A1 + E + 2T2

57
Chapter 6-57 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech IR Absorptions Infra-red absorption spectra arise when a molecular vibration causes a change in the dipole moment of the molecule. If the molecule has no permanent dipole moment, the vibrational motion must create one; if there is a permanent dipole moment, the vibrational motion must change it. Raman Absorptions Deals with polarizability

Named after discoverer, Indian physicist C.V.Raman (1927). It is a light scattering process. Irradiate sample with visible light - nearly all is transmitted; of the rest, most scattered at unchanged energy (frequency) (Rayleigh scattering), but a little is scattered at changed frequency (Raman scattering). The light has induced vibrational transitions in molecules (ground excited state) - hence some energy taken from light, Irradiate sample with visible light - nearly all is transmitted; of the rest, most scattered at unchanged energy (frequency) (Rayleigh scattering), but a little is scattered at changed frequency (Raman scattering). The light has induced vibrational transitions in molecules (ground excited state) - hence some energy taken from light, scattered at lower energy, i.e. at lower wavenumber. Raman scattering is weak - therefore need very powerful light source - always use lasers (monochromatic, plane polarised, very intense). scattered at lower energy, i.e. at lower wavenumber. Raman scattering is weak - therefore need very powerful light source - always use lasers (monochromatic, plane polarised, very intense). Each Raman band has wavenumber : Each Raman band has wavenumber : where = Raman scattered wavenumber 0 = wavenumber of incident radiation vib = a vibrational wavenumber of the molecule (in general several of these)

59
Chapter 6-59 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech Molecular Vibrations At room temperature almost all molecules are in their lowest vibrational energy levels with quantum number n = 0. For each normal mode, the most probable vibrational transition is from this level to the next highest level (n = 0 -> 1). The strong IR or Raman bands resulting from these transitiions are called fundamental bands. Other transitions to higher excited states (n = 0 -> 2, for instance) result in overtone bands. Overtone bands are much weaker than fundamental bands. At room temperature almost all molecules are in their lowest vibrational energy levels with quantum number n = 0.

60
Chapter 6-60 Chemistry 481, Spring 2014, LA Tech If the symmetry label of a normal mode corresponds to x, y, or z, then the fundamental transition for this normal mode will be IR active. If the symmetry label of a normal mode corresponds to products of x, y, or z (such as x 2 or yz) then the fundamental transition for this normal mode will be Raman active.
