AbstractHougen's role in developing our understanding of the symmetry classification of the energy levels of molecules is briefly reviewed. For chiral molecules the application of these symmetry ideas shows that chiral states have mixed parity. High angular momentum states of H2X molecules, in which rotational energy level clusters form, do have mixed parity and are chiral. We show here that such states can have long lifetimes.
