JAHN TELLER DISTORTION (EFFECT)

Jahn-Teller theorem:

In an electronically degenerate state, a nonlinear molecule undergoes distortion to remove the degeneracy by lowering the symmetry and thus by lowering the energy.

What is electronically degenerate state?

An electronically degenerate state represents the availability of more than one degenerate orbitals for an electron. In this condition the degenerate orbitals are asymmetrically occupied.
