Results for no bond breaking = trans and cis acetylene 1. For rovibronic symmetry species & nuclear spin statistics use permutation-inversion group G 4 = C 2h = C 2v 2. For symmetry species of electronic, vibrational, & rotational parts of basis functions use group G 4 (8) = G 32 3. For selection rules for perturbations between levels of cis-bent acetylene and trans-bent acetylene use G 4 4. There are energy level splittings caused by LAM tunnelings in G 4 (8) vibrational levels 5. But there are only rotational K-stack staggerings in G 4 rovibrational levels: K a = 4n, K a = 4n+2, and K a = odd

What theoretical tools are necessary to understand cis-bent acetylene, trans-bent acetylene (& vinylidene) = bent acetylene without (with) bond breaking? 1. Laboratory-fixed coordinate system Molecule-fixed coordinate systems Multiple-valued molecule-fixed coordinate systems Coordinate transformations under group operations 2. Point groups & Permutation-inversion groups & Extended permutation-inversion groups Limited identities in the group theory 3. Large amplitude motions Tunneling between equivalent minima High-barrier tunneling Hamiltonian

7
LAMs lead to a multiple valued coordinate system The coordinates { , , 1, 2 } = {K-rotation, HCCH torsion, HCC bend, CCH bend} for a given configuration in space are not unique. A multiple valued coordinate system leads to “limited identities” in the group theory and to “extended permutation-inversion groups”

10
This octuple group G 4 (8) = G 32 is isomorphic with the double group G 16 (2) = G 32 used for H 2 C=CH 2 by Merer and Watson in 1973. Why??? We can approximately visualize the average form of our cis/trans bent acetylene as (0.5H) 2 C=C(0.5H) 2

11
How do the tunneling splittings in G 4 (8) get to be K-staggerings in G 4 ? In the multiple-valued coordinate system there are 8 identical minima and therefore 8 localized vibrational basis functions Bending (H 12 ) and torsional (H 13 ) tunneling motions give the following bending-torsional (bt) splittings E( bt A lg + ) = E 0 + 2H 12 + 4H 13 E( bt B lg + ) = E 0 + 2H 12 4H 13 E( bt E g ) = E 0 2H 12 E( bt E 1 ) = E 0 + 2H 12 E( bt E + ) = E 0 2H 12,

12
Species of rotational levels J KaKc Species of final bending-torsional-rotational (btr) wavefunctions must belong to one of the four single valued representations: btr A lg + or btr A 2g or btr B 2u + or btr B 1u

13
E( bt A lg + ) = E 0 + 2H 12 + 4H 13 (only J 4n,even ) E( bt B lg + ) = E 0 + 2H 12 4H 13 (only J 4n+2,even ) E( bt E g ) = E 0 2H 12 (only J oe, J oo ) E( bt E 1 ) = E 0 + 2H 12 (doesn’t exist) E( bt E + ) = E 0 2H 12 (doesn’t exist) K-level staggerings

14
Future work 1. Try to find more examples of applications of this group theory and this K-staggering formalism in cis-bent and trans-bent S 1 acetylene spectra (A. Merer & Bob Field’s group) 2. Look for applications in H. Kanamori’s old (~ 2004 unpublished) T 1 acetylene spectra.

Next 2 slides show structure of coordinate transformations E One copy of Permutation-Inversion (ab)(12) group G 4 (ab)(12)* E* E Another copy of Permutation-Inversion (ab)(12) group G 4 (ab)(12)* E* E Another copy of Permutation-Inversion (ab)(12) group G 4 (ab)(12)* E* 8 copies in all

1. Tunneling path is nearly circular in 1, 2 space 2. Note very high barrier to linear configuration. Consider only bent forms of HCCH This allows us to avoid quasi-linear molecule complications
