The substitution of chromium in the oxidation state II by CrIII is investigated in the system (1 − x)Ta2CrO6 (x)TaCrO4, which involves Ta2CrO6 of monoclinic. ESR and magnetic susceptibility measurements performed on the ACuF4 copper 2+ fluorides (A = Ca, Sr, Ba) show that antiferrodistortive ordering of the copper. Tin IV-copper II hydroxide, CuSn(OH)6, belongs to the isostructural family of MII Sn(OH)6 hydroxides; these hydroxides are described as ReO3 oxide-type.

This is primarily caused by the occupation of these high energy orbitals.

Hypothetical absorption spectra of an octahedral molecule left and the same molecule with Jahn-Teller elongation right. The JT distortion reduces the symmetry from D 3h to C 2v see figureand it depends on the details of the interactions whether the isosceles triangle has an acute or an obtuse-angled such as Na 3 minimum energy structure.

This effect leads, for example, to a partial quenching of the spin-orbit interaction [21] [31] and allowed the results of previous Electron Paramagnetic Resonance EPR experiments to be explained.

Jahn-Teller Distortions

These electronic configurations correspond to a variety of transition metals. In such compounds the e g orbitals involved in the degeneracy point directly at the ligands, so distortion can result in a large energetic stabilisation. In particular they established how superexchange interactions, usually described by the Anderson—Kanamori—Goodenough rules, change in the presence of degenerate orbitals.

In first order, the effective orbital operator equals the actual orbital operator multiplied by a constant, whose value is less than one, known as effwt first-order Ham reduction factor. This included the use of pseudospin notation to discuss orbital ordering, and discussions of the importance of the JTE to discuss magnetism, the competition of this effect with the spin-orbit coupling and the coupling of the distortions with the strain of the lattice.

This effect is dependent on the electronic state of the tller. Naturally, the more accurate approach 2 may be limited to smaller systems, while the simpler approach 1 lends itself to studies of larger systems. They can therefore be neglected. Owing to the very nature of the degeneracy, the Hamiltonian takes the form of a matrix referring to the degenerate wave function components. Spin-degeneracy was an exception in the original treatment and was later treated separately.


The Jahn—Teller effectsometimes also known as Jahn—Teller distortiondescribes the geometrical distortion of molecules and ions that is associated with certain electron configurations. The most iconic and prominent of the JT systems in coordination chemistry is probably the case of Cu II octahedral complexes.

The spin of the system is dictated by the chemical environment.

Jahn–Teller effect – Wikipedia

The JTE is usually associated with degeneracies that are well localised in space, like those occurring in a small molecule or associated to an isolated transition metal complex. A less rigorous but more intuitive explanation is given in section Coordination Chemistry.

InHermann Jahn and Edward Teller postulated a theorem stating that “stability and degeneracy are not kahn simultaneously unless the molecule is a linear one,” efdet regards effeg its electronic state. However, the low spin d 5 electron configuration shows degeneracy, which then leads to possible Jahn-Teller effects.

These are represented by the sets’ symmetry labels: In octahedral complexes, the Jahn—Teller effect is most pronounced when an odd number of electrons occupy the e g orbitals.

The Jahn—Teller effect JT effect or JTE is an important mechanism of spontaneous symmetry breaking in molecular and solid-state systems effdt has far-reaching consequences for different fields, and it is related to a variety of applications in spectroscopystereochemistry and crystal chemistrymolecular and solid-state physicsand materials science. Also, the fullerides can form a so-called new state of matter known as a Jahn—Teller metal, where localised electrons coexist with metallicity and JT distortions on the C 60 molecules persist [37].

In many important cases like the parent compound for colossal magnetoresistance perovskites, LaMnO 3an increase of temperature leads to disorder in the distortions which lowers the band splitting due to the cooperative JTE, thus triggering a metal-insulator transition.

From less well-resolved spectra one can still determine important quantities like JT stabilization energies and energy barriers e. From spectra with rotational resolution, moments of inertia and hence bond lengths and angles can be determined “directly” at least in principle. Finally, a somewhat special role is played by systems with a fivefold symmetry axis like the cyclopentadienyl radical.


The distortions of these systems can be treated within the related theory of the pseudo Jahn—Teller effect in the literature often referred to as “second-order JTE”. This can produce a cooperative JTE, where global distortions of the crystal occur due to local degeneracies. Illustration of tetragonal distortion elongation for an octahedral complex. Kahn other JT systems, linear coupling results in discrete minima. The inversion centre is preserved after the distortion.

In general, conical intersections are far less symmetric than depicted in the figure. Thus one could go beyond studies of model systems that explore the effect of parameter variations on the PES and vibronic energy levels; one could also go on beyond fitting these parameters to experimental data without clear knowledge about the significance of the fit. As proposed originally by Landau [34] free electrons in a solid, introduced for example by doping or irradiation, can interact with the vibrations of the lattice to form a jahnn quasi-particle known as a polaron.

Jahn–Teller effect

Consider a hypothetical molecule with octahedral symmetry showing a single absorption band. Proof of the JT theorem follows from the theory of molecular symmetry point group theory. For a description of another type of geometrical distortion that occurs in crystals with substitutional impurities see article off-center ions.
