In this paper, we consider 2,3-dimethylbutane and find the structure of the full non-rigid group (f-NRG) of this molecule to be isomorphic to the group (Z3xZ3xZ3xZ3):Z2 of order 162 with 54 conjugacy classes and hence 54 irreducible characters. Here (Z 3xZ3Z3xZ3):Z2 denotes the semi direct product of four copies of the cyclic group Z3 by cyclic group Z2 of order 2. Then we use the GAP software package and find the complex character table of this group.
