If the blue faces are opposite each other, a 3 axis connects the centers of the blue faces. This axis has 3 perpendicular 2 axes, and contains three vertical mirror places (D 3d ). If the blue faces share one vertex of the octahedron, a 2 axis includes this vertex, and this axis includes two vertical mirror planes ( 2v ). The third possibility is for the blue faces to share an edge of the octahedron. In this case, a 2 axis bisects this shared edge, and includes two vertical mirror planes ( 2v ). b. There are three unique orientations of the three blue faces. If one blue face is arranged to form edges with each of the two remaining blue faces, the only symmetry operations are identity and a single mirror plane ( s ). If the three blue faces are arranged such that a single blue face shares an edge with one blue face, but only a vertex with the other blue face, the only symmetry operation is a mirror plane that passes through the center of the blue faces, and the point group is s. If the three blue faces each share an edge with the same yellow face, a 3 axis emerges from the center of this yellow face, and this axis includes three vertical mirror planes ( 3v ). c. If there are four different colors, and each pair of opposite faces has the identical color, the only symmetry operations are identity and inversion ( i ). 4.6 our point groups are represented by the symbols of the chemical elements. Most symbols have a single mirror in the plane of the symbol ( s ), for example, s! Two symbols have D 2h symmetry (, I), and two more (, S) have 2h. Seven exhibit 2v symmetry (B,, K, V, Y, W, U). In some cases, the choice of font may affect the point group. or example, the symbol for nitrogen may have 2h in a sans serif font () but otherwise s (N).

These are the only irreducible representations that match the coordinates x, y, and z In 4.28a, the symmetries of the stretching vibrations of cis-e() 4 l 2 ( 2v symmetry) are determined as 2 A + B + B 2. Each of these representations matches Raman-active functions: A (x 2, y 2, z 2 ) ; A 2 (xy), B (xz); and B 2 (yz), so all are Raman-active. In 4.28b, the symmetries of the stretching vibrations of trans-e() 4 l 2 (D 4h symmetry) are A g + B g + E u. Only A g (x 2 + y 2, z 2 ) and B g (x 2 y 2 ) match Raman active functions; this complex exhibits two Raman-active stretching vibrations.

(Alternatively, one could also determine the number of IR-active I stretches, a slightly more complicated task.) trans: D 4h E i 2S 4 h 2 v 2 d A g A 2u z There is only a single IR-active I O stretch (the antisymmetric stretch), A 2u. cis: 2v E 2 (xz) (yz) A z B x There are two IR-active I O stretches, the A and B (symmetric and antisymmetric). Infrared spectra should therefore be able to distinguish between these isomers. (Reversing the x and y axes would give A + B 2. Because B 2 matches y, it would also represent an IR-active vibration.) Because these isomers would give different numbers of IR-active absorptions, infrared spectra should be able to distinguish between them. The reference provides detailed IR data a. One way to deduce the number of Raman-active vibrations of AsP 3 is to first P determine the symmetries of all the degrees of freedom. This complex exhibits P P 3 symmetry, with the 3 axis emerging from the As atom. The (E) is 2; the x, y, and z axes of the four atoms do not shift when the identity operation is carried out. Only the As atom contributes to the character of the 3 transformation matrix; the P atoms shift during rotation about the 3 axis. The general transformation matrix for rotation about the z axis (Section 4.3.3) affords 0 as ( 3 ) for The As atom and one P atom do not shift when a v reflection is carried out, and ( v ) = 2 (see the v(xz) transformation matrix in Section 4.33 for the nitrogen atom of N 3 as a model of how the two unshifted atoms of AsP 3 will contribute to the character of the v transformation matrix).

15 hapter 4 Symmetry and Group Theory 47 Reduction of the reducible representation affords 3 A + A E. On the basis of the character table, the translational modes of AsP 3 have the symmetries A + E, and the rotational modes have the symmetries A 2 + E. The six vibrational modes of AsP 3 subsequently have the symmetries 2 A + 2 E. These vibrational modes are Raman-active, and four absorptions are expected (and observed) since the sets of E modes are degenerate. B. M. ossairt, M.. Diawara,.. ummins, Science 2009, 323, 602 assigns the bands as: 33 (a ), 345 (e), 428 (a ), 557 (e) cm -. Alternatively, the set of six bonds may be selected as the basis for a representation focused specifically on stretches of these bonds. This approach generates the following representation: 3v E 3 v This representation reduces to 2 A + 2 E, the same result as obtained by first considering all degrees of freedom, then subtracting the translational and rotational modes. b. As 2 P 2 exhibits 2v symmetry, and (like AsP 3 ) will have six vibrational modes (3N 6). Inspection of the 2v character table indicates that all vibrational P modes will be Raman active. Since each irreducible representation has a dimension of, the number of Raman absorptions expected is 6 (that is, there will be no degenerate vibrational modes). This prediction can be confirmed via deduction of the symmetries of the vibrational modes. As in part a, we will first determine the symmetries of all the degrees of freedom. The (E) of the transformation matrix is 2. In As 2 P 2, the 2 axis does not pass through any atoms, and all four atoms shift upon rotation; ( 2 ) = 0. Two atoms do not shift upon reflection through each of the v planes. The contribution to the character of the transformation matrix for each of these unshifted atoms is, and ( v (xz)) = ( v (yz)) = 2.

On the basis of the above character table, the translational modes of As 2 P 2 have the symmetries A + B + B 2, and the rotational modes have the symmetries A 2 + B + B 2. The six anticipated Raman-active vibrational modes of As 2 P 2 subsequently have the symmetries 3 A + A 2 + B + B 2. (continued on next page)
16 48 hapter 4 Symmetry and Group Theory As in part a, an alternative approach is to select the set of six bonds as the basis for a representation focused specifically on stretching vibrations. This approach generates the following representation: 2v E 2 v (xz) v (yz) This representation reduces to 3 A + A 2 + B + B 2, the same result as obtained by first considering all degrees of freedom, then subtracting the translational and rotational modes. c. The issue here is whether or not P 4 (T d ) exhibits 4 Raman-active vibrations as does AsP 3. We will first determine the symmetries of all the degrees of freedom. The (E) of the transformation matrix is 2. Only one P 4 atom is fixed upon rotation about each 3 axis; ( 3 ) = 0. All four atoms are shifted upon application of the 2 and S 4 axes; ( 2 ) = (S 4 ) = 0. Two atoms do not shift upon reflection through each of the d planes. The contribution to the character of the transformation matrix for each of these unshifted atoms is, and ( d ) = 2.

Since the symmetries of the translational modes and rotational modes are T 2 and T, respectively, the symmetries of the vibrational modes are A + E + T 2, all of these modes are Ramanactive so three Raman absorptions are expected for P 4, and P 4 could potentially be distinguished from AsP 3 solely on the basis of the number of Raman absorptions. The alternative approach, using the set of six P P bonds as the basis for a representation focused specifically on bond stretches, generates the following representation: T d E S 4 6 d This representation reduces to A + E + T 2, the same result as obtained by first considering all degrees of freedom, then subtracting the translational and rotational modes.

These stretching modes are IR-active and three ν() absorptions are expected for A. or B, a similar analysis affords the following irreducible representation: 2v E 2 v (xz) v (yz) A z x 2, y 2, z 2 A 2 R z xy B x, R y xz B 2 y, R x yz Reduction of the reducible representation affords 2 A + B + B 2. These stretching modes are IRactive, and four ν() absorptions are expected for A. The reported ν() IR spectrum is consistent with formation of isomer A, with the triphenylphosphine ligand in the axial site.
18 50 hapter 4 Symmetry and Group Theory 4.34 As in 4.33, we consider the triphenylphosphine ligand as a simple L group for point group determination. The point groups for isomers A, B, and are as follows: PPh 3 PPh 3 O e PPh 3 PPh 3 O e PPh 3 O e PPh 3 (A) 2v (B) D 3h () s or A, the set of irreducible representations for the three stretching vibrational modes is 2 A + B. These modes are all IR-active in the 2v character table, and three ν() IR absorptions are expected for isomer A. or B, the set of irreducible representations for the three stretching vibrational modes is A + E. Only the E mode is IR-active in the D 3h point group, and one ν() IR absorption is expected for isomer B. or, the set of irreducible representations for the three stretching vibrational modes is 2 A These modes are all IR-active in the s point group, and three ν() IR absorptions are expected for isomer. The single ν() IR absorption reported for e() 3 (PPh 3 ) 2 supports the presence of the D 3h isomer B. The trans isomer B is reported in R. L. Keiter, E. A. Keiter, K.. ecker,. A. Boecker, Organometallics, 988, 7, 2466, and the authors observe splitting of the absorption associated with the Emode in l 3. The forbidden A stretching mode was observed as a weak absorption The IR spectrum exhibits two ν() absorptions. The two proposed metal carbonyl fragments will be considered independently for analysis. O O Ti O O Ti D 4h 4v The reducible representation for the four vectors associated with the bonds in the 4v fragment is as follows: 4v E v 2 d Reduction of this representation affords A + B + E. The A and E modes are IR-active, and a titanium complex with a square pyramidal titanium tetracarbonyl fragment is supported by the IR spectral data.
19 hapter 4 Symmetry and Group Theory 5 or the D 4h fragment, the reducible representation for the set of vectors associated with the bonds is: D 4h E i 2S 4 h 2 v 2 d Reduction of the reducible representation affords A g + B g + E u. Only the E modes are IR-active, and a complex with a square planar titanium tetracarbonyl fragment is expected to exhibit a single IR ν() stretching absorption. This D 4h possibility can therefore be ruled out on the basis of the spectrum A reasonable product is the 4v molecule Mo() 5 (P(OPh) 3 ), with replacing a triphenylphosphite ligand. The reducible representation for the five vectors associated with the bonds in this molecule is: O O (OPh) 3 P Mo O 4v E v 2 d 5 3 Reduction of this representation affords 2 A + B + E. The A and E modes are IR-active, and three IR ν() stretching absorptions are expected. The reported IR spectrum features three strong ν() absorptions, and one very weak absorption attributed to the forbidden B mode in D. J. Darensbourg, T. L. Brown, Inorg. hem., 968, 7, I has 2 symmetry, with a 2 axis running right to left, perpendicular to the l, N, l, N and l, P, l, P faces. II also has 2 symmetry, with the same 2 axis as I. (Lower left corner occupied by l, not.) III has only an inversion center and i symmetry An example for each of the five possible point groups: T d : 3v : 2v : s : : Br Br Br l 4.39 a. The S portion is linear, so the molecule has a 3 axis along the line of these three atoms, three v planes through these atoms and an atom on each end, but no other symmetry elements. 3v b. The molecule has only an inversion center, so it is i. The inversion center is equivalent to an S 2 axis perpendicular to the average plane of the ring. c. M 2 l 6 Br 4 is i. d. This complex has a 3 axis, splitting the three N atoms and the three P atoms (almost as drawn), but no other symmetry elements. 3
