A complete vibrational analysis is performed for the 53 atomic PMo12O40 model of Td symmetry. The symmetry coordinates are classified into those of (a) ligand vibrations, (b) framework-ligand couplings, (c) framework vibrations, and (d) interligand vibrations. Simple valence force fields are estimated, and the influence of inclusion of redundancies on the calculated frequencies and symmetry force constants is investigated. Comments are made on calculated symmetry force constant values up to 345 mdyne/Å. Vibrational frequencies are calculated for the Mo3O7 and Mo3O13 units and for the PMo12O403- complex ion. For the latter compound the calculated values are compared with experimental data from infrared and Raman spectra.
