Craig, Norman C.; Lacuesta, Nanette N.
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n8 p1199 Aug 2004
A study of the vibrational spectroscopy of the cis and trans isomers of 1,2-dichloroethylene provides an excellent opportunity to learn the applications group theory in laboratories. The necessity of using infrared (IR) spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy in making full vibrational assignments is illustrated.
