Reading: CHP 4 Symmetry - Examples and Applications: 4.4

PreAssignment: Watch slideshows below

Learning Outcomes:

  • Determine the symmetry properties for the motions of small molecules
    • Quickly produce a reducible representation containing information about the motions of a molecule
    • Use character tables to find reducible representations and assign symmetry labels to molecular motions
    • Use character tables to determine the active vibrational and rotational modes
  • Determine the active vibration stretches for metal-carbonyl complexes
