The above model shows a Tin-complex formed using a novel amine-thiol solvent system. The molecular structure of this complex was assigned based on infrared multiple photon dissociation spectroscopy, which probes the different vibrations of the molecule. Use the above model to animate the different characteristic vibrations, which allowed the assignment of this structure. The corresponding wavenumber, indicating where this vibration is found in the spectrum, is given in parentheses.
