## Group Theory and Chemistry

By David M. Group theoretical principles are an integral part of modern chemistry. Not only do they help account for a wide variety of chemical phenomena, they simplify quantum chemical calculations. Indeed, knowledge of their application to chemical problems is essential for students of chemistry.

This complete, self-contained study, written for advanced undergraduate-level and graduate-level chemistry students, clearly and concisely introduces the subject of group theory and demonstrates its application to chemical problems. To assist chemistry students with the mathematics involved, Professor Bishop has included the relevant mathematics in some detail in appendixes to each chapter. The book can then be read either as an introduction, dealing with general concepts ignoring the appendixes , or a fairly comprehensive description of the subject including the appendixes.

In any case, the author assures students that "the mathematics involved in actually applying, as opposed to deriving, group theoretical formulae is quite trivial.

It involves little more than adding and multiplying. IN everyday language we use the word symmetry in one of two ways and correspondingly the Oxford English Dictionary gives the following two definitions:. Mutual relation of the parts of something in respect of magnitude and position; relative measurement and arrangement of parts; proportion.

Due or just proportion; harmony of parts with each other and the whole; fitting, regular, or balanced arrangement and relation of parts or elements; the condition or quality of being well proportioned or well balanced.

In this chapter we will first look at symmetry as it occurs in everyday life and then consider its specific role in chemistry. We will end the chapter by giving a historical sketch of the development of the mathematics which is used in making use of symmetry in chemistry.

The ubiquitous role of symmetry in everyday life has been neatly summarized by James Newman in the following way:. Dotted lines show planes of symmetry perpendicular to the page. In nature we find countless examples of symmetry and in Fig. Externally, most animals have bilateral symmetry that is to say they contain a single plane of symmetry ; such a plane bisects every straight line joining a pair of corresponding points.

This is the same thing as saying that the plane divides the object into two parts which are mirror images of each other. In Fig. Actually, the most frequent number of planes of symmetry in flowers is five.

Anyone interested in the predominance of bilateral symmetry in the animal world, with its corollary of left and right handedness, is recommended to read The ambidextrous universe. Similarly, the ice crystal in Fig. Because of its basic aesthetic appeal regularity, pleasing proportions, periodicity, harmonious arrangement symmetry has, since time immemorial, been used in art.

Probably the first example a child experiences of the beauty of symmetry is in playing with a kaleidoscope. More erudite examples occur in: poetry, for example the abccba rhyming sequence in many poems; architecture, for example the octagonal ceiling in Ely Cathedral see Fig. One thing we notice is that all of these examples involve either a plane, an axis or a centre of symmetry, which in turn define a plane, a line or a point about which the object is symmetric.

The involvement of symmetry in chemistry has a long history; in B. Today, the chemist intuitively uses symmetry every time he recognizes which atoms in a molecule are equivalent, for example in pyrene it is easy to see that there are three sets of equivalent hydrogen atoms.

The appreciation of the number of equivalent atoms in a molecule leads to the possibility of determining the number of substituted molecules that can exist e. Symmetry also plays an important part in the determination of the structure of molecules. Here, a great deal of the evidence comes from the measurement of crystal structures, infra-red spectra, ultra-violet spectra, dipole moments, and optical activities.

All of these are properties which depend on molecular symmetry. In connection with the spectroscopic evidence, it is interesting to note that in the preface to his famous book on group theory, Wigner writes:.

I like to recall his [M. Since that time, I have come to agree with his answer that the recognition that almost all rules of spectroscopy follow from the symmetry of the problem is the most remarkable result. Of course, the basis for our understanding of molecular structure rather than simply its determination lies in quantum mechanics and therefore any consideration of the role of symmetry in chemistry is basically a consideration of its role in quantum mechanics.

The link between symmetry and quantum mechanics is provided by that part of mathematics known as group theory.

In spite of the title, most of the mathematics which occurs in this book is in fact only a small part of the subject known as group theory. We will, however, now briefly sketch the history of this theory.

Galois had a short if action-packed life, and he was probably the youngest mathematician ever to make such significant discoveries. He was born in at Bourg-la-Reine just outside Paris, and by the age of sixteen he had read and understood the works of the great mathematicians of his day.

Galois had always been a convinced republican and had a strong hatred for all forms of tyranny, so it is not surprising to find that in he was arrested for proposing a toast which was interpreted as a threat on the life of King Louis Philippe. He was at first acquitted but then, shortly afterwards, he was arrested again and sentenced to six months in jail for illegally wearing a uniform and carrying weapons.

He died on May 31st when only 20 years old from wounds received from being shot in the intestines during a duel. The night before the duel, Galois with forebodings of death wrote out for posterity notes concerning his most important discoveries, which at that time had not been published. His total work is less than sixty pages. The concept of a group had been introduced by Galois in his work on the theory of equations and this was followed up by Baron Augustin Louis Cauchy — who went on to originate the theory of permutation groups.

For the chemist, however, the most important part of group theory is representation theory. This theory and the idea of group characters were developed almost single-handedly at the turn of the century by the German algebraist George Ferdinand Frobenius — Through a decade nearly every volume of the Berliner Sitzungberichte contained one or other of his beautiful papers on this subject.

One of the earliest applications of the theory of groups was in the study of crystal structure and with the later development of X-ray analysis this application was revised and elaborated. Of much more importance is the work of Hermann Weyl — and Eugene Paul Wigner — who in the late twenties of this century developed the relationship between group theory and quantum mechanics.

It is interesting that Weyl had a deep conviction that the harmony of nature could be expressed in mathematically beautiful laws and an outstanding characteristic of his work was his ability to unite previously unrelated subjects.

He created a general theory of matrix representation of continuous groups and discovered that many of the regularities of quantum mechanics could be best understood by means of group theory.

Jensen and M. Finally attention is drawn to a germinal paper on the application of group theory to problems concerning the nature of crystals which was published in by another Nobel Prize winner, the German physicist Hans Albrecht Bethe —. We will conclude this chapter by noting that it is one of the most extraordinary things in science that something as simple and abstract as the theory of groups should be so useful in the practical and everyday problems of the chemist and it is perhaps worth quoting here the English mathematician and philosopher, A.

THE purpose of this book is to show how the consideration of molecular symmetry can cut short a lot of the work involved in the quantum mechanical treatment of molecules. Of course, all the problems we will be concerned with could be solved by brute force but the use of symmetry is both more expeditious and more elegant.

Symmetry will also allow us immediately to obtain useful qualitative information about the properties of molecules from which their structure can be predicted; for example, we will be able to predict the differences in the infra-red and Raman spectra of methane and monodeuteromethane and thereby distinguish between them.

However, to start with we must get a clear idea what it is we mean by the symmetry of a molecule. In the first place it means consideration of the arrangement of the atoms or, more precisely, the nuclei in their equilibrium positions. Now, when we look at different nuclear arrangements, it is obvious that we require a much more precise and scientific definition of symmetry than any of those given previously in Chapter 1, for clearly there are many different kinds of symmetry, for example the symmetry of benzene is patently different from that of methane, yet both are in some sense symmetric.

Only when we have put the concept of symmetry on a sound basis, will we be able to classify molecules into various symmetry types see the next chapter. The way in which we systematize our notion of symmetry is by introducing the concept of a symmetry operation , which is an action which moves the nuclear framework into a position indistinguishable from the original one.

At first sight it would appear that there are very many such operations possible. We will see, however, that each falls into one of five clearly delineated types: identity, rotation, reflection, rotation-reflection, and inversion. Related to the symmetry operation will be the symmetry element. These two terms are not the same and the reader is warned not to confuse them. The symmetry operation is an action, the symmetry element is a geometrical entity a point, a line or a plane about which an action takes place.

It is worth stressing here that one of the problems in the theory of symmetry is the confusion over the meaning of words, some of which have a general meaning in everyday life but a very precise one in the theory of this book. Further confusion arises from the use of symbols which have one meaning in arithmetic and another in group theory.

The reader is advised to think carefully what the words and symbols in this text really mean and not to jump to conclusions. With this in mind, we discuss initially in this chapter the algebra of operators. An operator is the symbol for an operation the words operator and operation are often used interchangeably, and though, semantically, they should not be, no great harm comes from doing so. On the surface this algebra appears to be the same as the algebra of numbers but, in fact, it is not so.

At the end of this chapter we will show that knowledge of symmetry can lead us directly to predict whether a molecule can have a dipole moment and whether it can exhibit optical activity. An operator is the symbol for an operation which produces one function from another. Just as a function f assigns to each x in some range a number f x , so an operator O assigns to each function f in a certain class, a new function denoted by O f.

To distinguish operators from other algebraic symbols we will characterize them by bold face italic letters. An operator, therefore, is a rule or a means of getting one function from another and at the outset it is important to realize their very great generality; they can, for example, be as simple as multiplication by 2 where in mathematical terms we would write:.

One special kind of operator is the linear operator. An operator O will be linear if. The algebra of linear operators consists of a definition of 1 a sum law, 2 a product law, 3 an associative law, and 4 a distributive law.

The sum of two linear operators O 1 and O 2 is defined by the equation:. The product of two linear operators O 1 and O 2 is defined by the equation. It should be noticed that the order of the operators in a product is important in this respect their algebra is different from the algebra of numbers , and that O 1 O 2 is not necessarily the same operator as O 2 O 1 e. Incidentally, the reader must constantly be aware of the fact that when one writes a product of two operators, O 1 O 2 it does not mean O 1 multiplied by O 2 although on paper it might appear that way.

A symmetry operation is an operation which when applied to a molecule by which we mean the nuclear framework moves it in such a way that its final position is physically indistinguishable from its initial position. It should be pointed out that such an operation can have no effect on any physical property of the molecule. Also, in this text, we will establish the convention that the operation is applied to the molecule itself and not to some set of spatial axes.

The symbol for such an operation is called a symmetry operator for which bold-face italic type will be used. For every symmetry operation there is a corresponding symmetry element a point, a line, or a plane with respect to which the operation is carried out.

There are five different kinds of symmetry operation. This is the operation of doing nothing leaving the molecule unchanged and, at first sight, may seem somewhat gratuitous; its inclusion, however, is necessary for the group theory that comes later.

The corresponding symmetry element is called the identity and it has the symbol E from the German word Einheit meaning unity. This is the operation of rotating a molecule clockwise about an axis. Necessarily n is an integer.

Он тихонько толкнул дверь, и та отворилась. Беккер с трудом сдержал крик ужаса. Меган сидела на унитазе с закатившимися вверх глазами. В центре лба зияло пулевое отверстие, из которого сочилась кровь, заливая лицо. - О Боже! - воскликнул он в ужасе.

Он проявил редкую наблюдательность. - Но ведь вы ищете ключ к шифру, а не ювелирное изделие. - Конечно. Но я думаю, что одно с другим может быть связано самым непосредственным образом. Сьюзан отказывалась его понимать.

*Наверное, она подумает бог знает что: он всегда звонил ей, если обещал. Беккер зашагал по улице с четырехполосным движением и бульваром посередине.*

- Никакая это не паранойя. Этот чертов компьютер бьется над чем-то уже восемнадцать часов. Конечно же, все дело в вирусе. Чатрукьян это чувствовал. У него не было сомнений относительно того, что произошло: Стратмор совершил ошибку, обойдя фильтры, и теперь пытался скрыть этот факт глупой версией о диагностике.

- Con permiso. Не дождавшись ответа, он вошел. Типичная для Испании туалетная комната: квадратная форма, белый кафель, с потолка свисает единственная лампочка. Как всегда, одна кабинка и один писсуар. Пользуются ли писсуаром в дамском туалете -неважно, главное, что сэкономили на лишней кабинке.

Дело в том, что АНБ не только существовало, но и считалось одной из самых влиятельных правительственных организаций в США и во всем мире. Уже больше полувека оно занималось тем, что собирало электронные разведданные по всему миру и защищало американскую секретную информацию. О его существовании знали только три процента американцев.

Он рассчитывал, сидя в испанском баре, услышать по Си-эн-эн пресс-конференцию об американском сверхсекретном компьютере, способном взломать любые шифры. После этого он позвонил бы Стратмору, считал пароль с кольца на своем пальце и в последнюю минуту спас главный банк данных АНБ. Вдоволь посмеявшись, он исчез бы насовсем, превратившись в легенду Фонда электронных границ.

Могли сбой произойти внезапно, сам по. Размышляя об этом, Сьюзан вдруг вспомнила фразу, сказанную Стратмором: Я попытался запустить Следопыта самостоятельно, но информация, которую он выдал, оказалась бессмысленной. Сьюзан задумалась над этими словами. Информация, которую он выдал… Она резко подняла голову. Возможно ли .
