Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • activity

    The decay rate of a radioactive material, generally expressed as the number of disintegrations per unit time. (Section 21.4)

  • alkaline earth metals

    Members of group 2A in the periodic table. (Section 7.7)

  • Alkylation reaction

    Any reaction in which a new carbon-carbon bond to an alkyl group is formed.

  • annulenes

    Compounds consisting of a single ring containing a fully conjugated p system. Benzene is [6]annulene.

  • benzylic position

    A carbon atom that is immediately adjacent to a benzene ring.

  • bonding pair

    In a Lewis structure a pair of electrons that is shared by two atoms. (Section 9.2)

  • carbonyl group

    A CRO bond. carboxylic acid derivative (Sect. 21.6): A compound that is similar in structure to a carboxylic acid (RCOOH) but the OH group of the carboxylic acid has been replaced with a different group, Z, where Z is a heteroatom such as Cl, O, N, etc. Nitriles (R!C#N) are also considered to be carboxylic acid derivatives because they have the same oxidation state as carboxylic acids.

  • catenation.

    The ability of the atoms of an element to form bonds with one another. (22.3)

  • Constitutional isomers

    Compounds with the same molecular formula but a different connectivity of their atoms

  • electrophile

    A compound containing an electron-deficient atom that is capable of accepting a pair of electrons.

  • frontier orbitals

    The highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) that participate in a reaction.

  • functional group

    An atom or group of atoms that imparts characteristic chemical properties to an organic compound. (Section 24.1)

  • Meisenheimer complex

    Theresonance-stabilized intermediate of a nucleophilicaromatic substitution reaction.

  • noble gases

    Members of group 8A in the periodic table. (Section 7.8)

  • progestins

    Female sex hormones.

  • rare earth element

    See lanthanide element. (Sections 6.8 and 6.9)

  • reaction mechanism

    A series of intermediates and curved arrows that show howthe reaction occurs in terms of the motion of electrons.

  • S

    A term used to designate the configuration of a chirality center, determined in the following way: Each of the four groups is assigned a priority, and the molecule is then rotated (if necessary) so that the #4 group is directed behind the page (on a dash). A counterclockwise sequence for 1-2-3 is designated as S.

  • s-cis

    A conformation of a conjugated diene in which the disposition of the two p bonds with regard to the connecting single bond is cis-like (a dihedral angle of 0°).

  • Z

    For alkenes, a stereodescriptor that indicates that the two priority groups are on the same side of the p bond.
