The vibrations of

polyatomic molecules

Diatomic molecule = one vibrational mode: the bond stretch.

Polyatomic molecule = several modes of vibrations: all bonds

and angles.

Normal modes

nonlinear: 3N – 6 independent vibrational modes.

linear: 3N – 5 independent vibrational modes.

3N coordinates (x,y,z for each atom). With

physically sensible grouping:

of centre of mass.

2 angles needed for special orientation of

molecular axis.

1 angle (if nonlinear!) needed for

orientation around the molecular axis.

the remaining are vibrational modes.

Examples:

CO2 = linear triatomic, 4 vibration modes, 2 rotation modes.

Naphthalene C10H8 = 48 distinct modes of vibration.

A possible choice for the 4 modes of CO2:

stretching of the other bond (R),

and 2 perpendicular bend modes (2).

group of atoms that may be excited without leading to the

excitation of any other normal mode and without involving

translation or rotation of the molecule as a whole.

Each normal mode, q, behaves like an independent harmonic

oscillator (if anharmonicities are neglected), with:

CO2).

Infrared absorption spectra

of polyatomic molecules

Gross selection rule for infrared activity of a normal mode: it

should be accompanied by a change of dipole moment.

Decided by inspection. Example, for CO2:

unchanged (at zero)

antisymmetric stretch is infrared active: dipole moment

changes parallel to molecular axis because molecule

becomes unsymmetrical as it vibrates; parallel band.

both bending modes are infrared active: dipole moment

changes perpendicular to the principal axis; perpendicular

band. Molecular linearity eliminated, hence a Q branch is

observed.

rotational energies are ill-defined:

lifetime broadening > 1 cm-1 can easily result.

rotational structure of vibrational spectrum is blurred.

infrared spectra in condensed phases usually consists

of broad lines spanning the entire range of the resolved

gas-phase spectrum, and showing no branch structure.

Vibrational Raman spectra

Gross selection rule for vibrational Raman activity of a normal

mode: it should be accompanied by a changing polarizability.

Decided by inspection (usually difficult). Example, for CO2:

contraction changes polarizability.

and Raman active. A mode may be inactive in both. This rule

applies to CO2, but not H2O or CH4.
