Vibrations

What is a vibration in a molecule?

Any change in shape of the molecule- stretching of bonds, bending of bonds, or internal rotation around single bonds

http://academic.pgcc.edu/~ssinex/VibMol/form.html

Can a vibration change the dipole moment of a molecule?

Asymmetrical stretching/bending and internal rotation change the dipole moment of a molecule. Asymmetrical stretching/bending are IR active.

Symmetrical stretching/bending does not. Not IR active


What wavelength of electromagnetic radiation is involved in causing vibrations in molecules?

Infrared (IR) electromagnetic radiation causes vibrations in molecules (wavelengths of 2500-15,000 nm or 2.5 – 15 mm or mcm)

For a vibration at 4111 cm-1 (the stretch in H2), how many vibrations occur in a second?

120 trillion vibration per second!!!!

120 x 1012 vibrations/sec or a vibration every 8 x 10-15 seconds!

WOW !!!!!


How does the mass influence the vibration? causing vibrations in molecules?

H2

I2

MM =2 g/mole

MM =254 g/mole

The greater the mass - the lower the wavenumber


154 pm causing vibrations in molecules?

10 pm

10 pm

4o

How much movement occurs in the

vibration of a C-C bond?

stretching vibration

For a C-C bond with a bond length of 154 pm, the variation is about 10 pm.

bending vibration

For C-C-C bond angle a change of 4o is typical.

This moves a carbon atom about 10 pm.

A little physics of electromagnetic radiation
A little physics of electromagnetic radiation causing vibrations in molecules?

= hcn’

  • Energy (E) E = hn = hc/l

    • where h is Planck’s constant, c is the speed of light, n is frequency or the number of vibrations per secondand l is the wavelength

  • Wavenumber (n’) n’ = 1/ l

    • given in cm-1

  • Period (P) P = 1/n

    • the time between a vibration

Energy, frequency, and wavenumber are directly proportional to each other.


What type of vibrations would occur in pentane
What type of vibrations would occur in pentane? causing vibrations in molecules?

Let’s examine the IR spectrum of pentane.


IR spectrum causing vibrations in molecules?

C-H

stretching

C-H

bending

Increasing absorption of IR radiation

C-C

bending

Increasing wavelength

Increasing wavenumber (energy, frequency)


IR Spectra of causing vibrations in molecules?chloroform and deuterochloroform

Increasing absorbance

Shift of peak due to replacement of H with D (2x mass)

* Spartan ’02 AM1 minimization


Some results
Some results causing vibrations in molecules?

  • Calculated values using computational software give lower wave numbers

  • Increasing mass of substituted atoms shifts wave numbers to lower values

    (Excel spreadsheet)

  • Stretching energies > bending energies > internal rotation energies (occur at higher wavelengths)


Does the stretching energy have any relationship to the strength of the bond?

W = 6.3286BE + 401.38

r2 = 0.7979


Let s examine the carbonyl group on three compounds
Let’s examine the carbonyl group on three compounds strength of the bond?

formaldehyde

phosgene

acetone

How does the C=O stretching energy compare for these three molecules?

2053 cm-1

1951 cm-1

2063 cm-1

The carbonyl group has a range of 1700-3000 cm-1.


Functional group analysis in organic compounds
Functional group analysis in organic compounds strength of the bond?

  • Unlike atomic spectroscopy where sharp energy transitions occur due to well quantized electron transitions, molecular spectroscopy tends to show bands.

  • Molecular vibrations are influenced by the surrounding groups!

Use of ir spectra
Use of IR spectra strength of the bond?

  • Identification of functional groupson a molecule – this is a very important tool in organic chemistry

  • Spectral matching can be done by computer software and library spectra

  • Since absorbance follows Beer’s Law, can do quantitative analysis
