3 Chemistry 318N Molecular Vibrations c For a molecule to absorb IR radiation, the bond undergoing vibration – must be polar ( change dipole moment ) c Covalent bonds that do not meet this criterion are said to be IR inactive – the C-C double and triple bonds of symmetrically substituted alkenes and alkynes, for example, do not absorb IR radiation because they are not polar bonds H 2 N 2 CO 2 ?????? Chemistry 318N THE ENERGY OF ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES (nu-bar) represents wavenumber, the number of wavelengths in 1 cm λ υ λυ c ν hc c h h E = = = = = 1 10 microns (micrometers) = 1000 cm -1

In real molecules, oscillation is anharmonic . Chemistry 318N Energy quantization of the oscillator classical and quantum behavior are very different: energy classical: all possible values of total energy are allowed quantum: only certain ‘energy levels’ allowed note that although the energy levels are equally spaced for the harmonic oscillator this is not true for all QM systems note also that it is not possible for the quantum harmonic oscillator to have zero energy – it must have some energy even at 0 K 0 0 1 2 3 4 n . . . . ‘quantum number’
