  The problem with the more basic books is that they don't cover enough for the symmetry at undergraduate level. Vincent's book is okay but isn't in depth enough to even cover the whole of the first course I did, let alone the subsequent courses.   A thorough introduction to molecular symmetry and group theory as applied to chemical problems. Readers will discover by example the power of symmetry arguments in understanding otherwise intimidating theoretical problems in chemistry. This book demonstrates the centrality of symmetry and group theory to a complete understanding of the theory of Author: Robert L. Carter.

  I bought this book because it is advised from one of my classmates of Transition metal chemistry. If you need to learn molecular symmetry, this book is very good. It teachs in a logical order. The only not good part may be its size. I prefer bigger books so you can easily bend. So you should be polite to this book when reading.4/5(4). Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry, Atomic Structure, and Bonding Jump into the world of inorganic chemistry with a review of atomic structure. Study humanity's discovery of the atomic structures, familiarize yourself with representations of molecules, visualize molecular geometry, and recognize common types of intermolecular attractions.

This is accounted for by a further element of equivalency that comes from the symmetry of the molecule. Because the right-hand side of the molecule is exactly equal to the left-hand side, the two CH 3 groups on the ends are in identical chemical environments, as . (b) centre of symmetry - if one is found, molecule belongs to point group. C. i. e.g. CHClBrCHClBr (staggered conformation): C. C H Cl Br H Cl Br. No axis, no planes, but mid-point of C-C bond is centre of symmetry. Therefore C. i. point group. No axes, plane or centre, therefore (c) no symmetry except E: point group.

A symmetry operation is an action that leaves an object looking the same after it has been carried out. Each symmetry operation has a corresponding symmetry element, which is the axis, plane, line or point with respect to which the symmetry operation is carried out.

Symmetry Elements - These are the geometrical elements like line, plane with respect to which one or more symmetric operations are carried out.

The symmetry of a molecule can be described by 5 types Symmetry in chemistry book symmetry elements. Symmetry axis: an axis around which a rotation by results in a molecule indistinguishable from the original.

Focus is on molecular vibrations and chemical bonding. Coverage includes symmetry elements, matrices, representations, higher order point groups, molecular vibrations, vibrational spectroscopy, and symmetry aspects of chemical bonding."--SciTech Book NewsCited by: 4.

Molecular Symmetry and Group Theory is based around a series of programmes that help students learn at their own pace and enable them to understand the subject fully.

Readers are taken through a series of carefully constructed exercises, designed to simplify the mathematics and give them a full understanding of how this relates to the by: 7.

This book, devoted exclusively to symmetry in chemistry and developed in an essentially nonmathematical way, is a must for students and researchers. Topics include symmetry elements and operations, multiple symmetry operations, multiplication tables and point groups, group theory applications, and crystal symmetry.

Extensive appendices provide useful tables. A symmetry operation is an action that leaves an object looking the same after it has been carried out. For example, if we take a molecule of water and rotate it by ° about an axis passing through the central O atom (between the two H atoms) it will look the same as before.

It will also look the same if we reflect it through either of two. Molecular symmetry in chemistry describes the symmetry present in molecules and the classification of molecules according to their symmetry. Molecular symmetry is a fundamental concept in chemistry, as it can be used to predict or explain many of a molecule's chemical properties, such as its dipole moment and its allowed spectroscopic.

Because symmetry arguments are a powerful tool in teaching such concepts as hybridization, group and molecular orbitals, selection rules in absorption spectroscopy, crystal structure, and other topics, a book devoted exclusively to symmetry in chemistry, developed in an essentially nonmathematical way, is a must for students and research workers interested in.

To avoid this, cancel and sign in to. Molecular Symmetry is a must-have introduction to this fundamental topic for students of chemistry, and will also find a place on the bookshelves of postgraduates and researchers looking for a broad and modern introduction to the subject.

Symmetry in Coordination Chemistry provides a comprehensive discussion of molecular symmetry. It attempts to bridge the gap between the elementary ideas of bonding and structure learned by freshmen, and those more sophisticated concepts used by the practicing chemist.

Symmetry is all around us. Most people find symmetry aesthetically pleasing. Molecular symmetry imposes constraints on molecular properties 1.A symmetry operation is an action that leaves an object looking the same after it has been carried out.

A symmetry element is a point, straight line, or plane (flat surface) with respect to which a symmetry operation is carried out.

CHAPTER4. GROUPTHEORY In group theory, the elements considered are symmetry operations. For a given molecular system described by the Hamiltonian Hˆ, there is a set of symmetry operations Oˆ i which commutewithHˆ: Oˆ i,Hˆ = Size: KB. Advanced Inorganic Chemistry/Symmetry Elements () Symmetry elements of the molecule are geometric entities: an imaginary point, axis or plane in space, which symmetry operations: rotation, reflection or inversion, are performed.

I did not select Professor Kettle’s book as the course text, but instead added it to my collection of reference texts. As the course went on, I would occasionally glance at sections of Kettle’s book and think, “That’s a nice way of looking at that system, I think I’ll use that.

Symmetry in chemistry. Huntington, N.Y.: R.E. Krieger Pub. Co.,© (OCoLC)Seeing Symmetry is an informational picture book that targets a concept in mathematics: symmetry.

It defines what symmetry is and its identifying characteristics. It also provides different examples of things that exemplify symmetry like butterflies, human faces, words, and playing cards and where you can find these objects/5.Because symmetry arguments are a powerful tool in teaching such concepts as hybridization, group and molecular orbitals, crystal structure and other topics, a book devoted to symmetry in chemistry is very helpful for students.

This is such a book.
