to this website on Symmetry and Spectroscopy
This website has
been designed to assist Group theory courses that are taught at The
University of Hull Chemistry Department. This course involves the symmetry
and structure of molecules. The geometric shape of a molecule give rise
to it's properties (like the electronic structure and spectroscopic
signature). The partnership is provided by the molecular symmetry.
The website is divided into the following sections :
meanings of all the symmetry operations are listed here.
is an interactive simulation for identifying the point group
of a molecule. Used in inorganic chemistry for spectroscopy
each point group there is a character table that identifies
which rotation or vibration constitutes to the peaks seen
IR and Raman Spectra
the spectra both qualitative and quantitative analysis can
be performed. The rotation that bring about the peaks on
the spectra can be found by reduction.
