1,2Shift
A type of rearrangement in which an atom or group of atoms with its bonding electrons moves from one atom to an adjacent electrondefi cient atom.

acetal
A functional group characterized by two alkoxy (OR) groups connected to the same carbon atom.Acetals can be used as protecting groups for aldehydes or ketones.

amine
A compound that has the general formula R3N, where R may be H or a hydrocarbon group. (Section 16.7)

anti conformation
A conformation in which the dihedral angle between two groups is 180°.

Bond dissociation enthalpy
The amount of energy required to break a bond into two radicals in the gas phase at 25°C, A!B !> A• 1 •B

buffer capacity
The amount of acid or base a buffer can neutralize before the pH begins to change appreciably. (Section 17.2)

Confi guration
Refers to the arrangement of atoms about a stereocenter

disaccharide
Carbohydrates comprisedof two monosaccharide units joined via aglycosidic linkage between the anomeric carbonof one monosaccharide and a hydroxyl group ofthe other monosaccharide.

electron density
The probability of finding an electron at any particular point in an atom; this probability is equal to c2, the square of the wave function. Also called the probability density. (Section 6.5)

Hammond’s postulate
The structure of the transition state for an exothermic step looks more like the reactants of that step than the products. Conversely, the structure of the transition state for an endothermic step looks more like the products of that step than the reactants.

heterogeneous equilibrium
The equilibrium established between substances in two or more different phases, for example, between a gas and a solid or between a solid and a liquid. (Section 15.4)

hydroborationoxidation
A twostep process that achieves an antiMarkovnikov addition of a proton and a hydroxyl group (OH) across an alkene.

mass spectrometry
The study ofthe interaction between matter and an energysource other than electromagnetic radiation. Massspectrometry is used primarily to determine the molecular weight and molecular formula of a compound.

nucleus
The very small, very dense, positively charged portion of an atom; it is composed of protons and neutrons. (Section 2.2)

oxyacid
A compound in which one or more OH groups, and possibly additional oxygen atoms, are bonded to a central atom. (Section 16.10)

ozonolysis
A reaction in which the CRC bond of an alkene is cleaved to form two CRO bonds.

quaternary ammonium salt
An ionic compound containing a positively charged nitrogen atom connected to four alkyl groups.

Raman spectroscopy
A vibrational molecular spectroscopy that is complementary to infrared (IR) spectroscopy in that infrared inactive vibrations are seen in Raman spectroscopy.

reducing agent
A compound that reduces another compound and in the process is itself oxidized. Sodium borohydride and lithium aluminum hydride are reducing agents.

spectrum
The distribution among various wavelengths of the radiant energy emitted or absorbed by an object. (Section 6.3)
