Inorganic problem

  1. Feb 7, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am trying to explain why an anion C6O6 2- would have the symmetry D6h. The problem gives you all of the IR and Raman absorptions and asks to explain why D6h is the proper symmetry for C6O6 2- anion.

    For you reference the problem is 3.25 in "Inorganic Chemistry" written by Huhney(sorry if i spelled your name wrong)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Do you use character tables to figure this out? Or do I really have to go through the whole process of finding the irreducible set from the reducible set?
