Chimica Inorganica 3

A symmetry operation carries the system into an equivalent configuration, which is, by definition physically indistinguishable from the original configuration. Clearly then, the energy of the system must be the same before and after carrying out the symmetry operation!

[R,H ] = RH -H R = 0

By applying each of the operations in the group to an eigenfunction Ψi belonging to a non degenerate eigenvalue, we generate a representation of the group with each matrix, Γi(R), equal to ±1. Since the representations are one dimensional, they are irreducible!

Matrices describing the transformation of a set of k eigenfunctions corresponding to a k-fold degenerate eigenvalue are a k-dimensional irreducible representation for the group

Let us consider 2px and 2py nitrogen AOs of NH3.

px = R2,1N r( )sinθ cosϕ

py = R2,1N r( )sinθ sinϕ

None of the operation of the C3v group will affect θ so that:

sinθ1 = sinθ2

but

ϕ2 =ϕ1 +2π3

If we reflect in the xz plane, we have

ϕ2 = −ϕ1; cosϕ2 = cosϕ1; sinϕ2 = −sinϕ1

The characters are seen to be those of the E representation of C3v. Thus we see that the px and py orbitals, as a pair, provide a basis for the E representation.

There is a second type of matrix multiplication that we will encounter in applications. It is called the direct product of two matrices and is written A × B. We shall define this operation by example

In general, the direct product is not commutative. There are no restrictions on the number of rows or columns in either matrix.

The Direct Product

tr A× B( ) = tr B× A( ) = tr A( )tr B( )

When A and B are both square (but not necessarily of the same order) the following important result applies:

Let us see which are the consequences

Let us suppose that R is an operation in the symmetry group of a molecule and X and Y are two sets of functions, which are bases for representations of the group.

The set of functions XjYℓ, the direct product of Xj and Yℓ, also form a representation of the group. The zjℓ,ik are the elements of a matrix Z of order (mn) × (mn). Moreover, it is possible to demonstrate that characters of the representation of a direct product are equal to the product of characters of the representations based on the individual sets of functions

Chimica Inorganica 3

The Kh point group contains an infinite number of C∞ axes and a center of inversion i. It also contains elements generated from these. This is the point group to which a sphere belongs and therefore the point group to which all atoms belong. Although an atom with partially filled orbitals may not be spherically symmetrical, the electronic wave function is classified according to the Kh point group

The spherically symmetrical point group Kh contains all symmetry operations. The pure rotational subgroup K contains all rotations. In either of these groups, a complete set of orbitals is a basis for an irreducible representation of the group. The s orbital is the totally symmetric one-dimensional representation, the p orbitals give a 3 dimensional representation, d orbitals are five-dimensional, etc.

Chimica Inorganica 3

The character for rotation by the angle ω is given by the following equation:

χ ω( ) = sin ℓ+ 12( )ω

sinω2

χ E( ) = 2ℓ+1χ ω( ) = sin ℓ+ 1

χ σ( ) = ±sin ℓ+ 12( )π = −1( )ℓ χ C2( )

χ i( ) = ±2ℓ+1= ±χ E( ) = −1( )ℓ χ E( )

Chimica Inorganica 3

All other groups are subgroups of Kh, and all rotational groups are subgroups of K. If we lower the symmetry to O, we find that the representation for the s orbital is A1 and the representation for the p orbitals in O is T1. There is no five-dimensional representation, so the representation obtained for the d orbitals is a reducible representation in the O group. It reduces to E + T2. The representation in K for the f orbitals reduces to A2 + T1 + T2 in the O group.

Chimica Inorganica 3

Orbitals of even parity (ℓ even) are g and those of odd parity (ℓ odd) are u. Hence, in Oh symmetry the representations are s, A1g; p, T1u; d, Eg + T2g; and f , A2u + T1u + T2u. We can find the representations for the rotational group using for χ(ω) and add the g or u subscripts for the corresponding centrosymmetric group
