Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • atomic number (Z).

    The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom. (2.3)

  • boiling-point elevation (DTb).

    The boiling point of the solution (Tb) minus the boiling point of the pure solvent (T° b). (12.6)

  • carbon black

    A microcrystalline form of carbon. (Section 22.9)

  • Chain propagation

    A step in a chain reaction characterized by the reaction of a reactive intermediate and a molecule to give a new reactive intermediate and a new molecule.

  • chemical equilibrium.

    A state in which the rates of the forward and reverse reactions are equal. (14.1)

  • compound semiconductor

    A semiconducting material formed from two or more elements. (Section 12.7)

  • coordinate covalent bond.

    A bond in which the pair of electrons is supplied by one of the two bonded atoms; also called a dative bond. (9.9)

  • dimensional analysis

    A method of problem solving in which units are carried through all calculations. Dimensional analysis ensures that the final answer of a calculation has the desired units. (Section 1.6)

  • electronegativity

    A measure of the ability of an atom that is bonded to another atom to attract electrons to itself. (Section 8.4)

  • furanose

    A five-membered cyclic hemiacetal form of a carbohydrate.

  • Hofmann elimination

    When treated with a strong base, a quaternary ammonium halide undergoes b-elimination by an E2 mechanism to give the less-substituted alkene as the major product

  • ion–dipole force

    The force that exists between an ion and a neutral polar molecule that possesses a permanent dipole moment. (Section 11.2)

  • methyl shift

    A type of carbocation rearrangement in which a methyl group migrates.

  • nuclear disintegration series

    A series of nuclear reactions that begins with an unstable nucleus and terminates with a stable one; also called a radioactive series. (Section 21.2)

  • oils

    Triglycerides that are liquids at room temperature.

  • Primary structure of nucleic acids

    The sequence of bases along the pentose-phosphodiester backbone of a DNA or RNA molecule read from the 5’ end to the 3’ end

  • reaction quotient (Q)

    The value that is obtained when concentrations of reactants and products are inserted into the equilibrium expression. If the concentrations are equilibrium concentrations, Q = K; otherwise, Q ? K. (Section 15.6)

  • Resonance in NMR spectroscopy

    The absorption of electromagnetic radiation by a precessing nucleus and the resulting “fl ip” of its nuclear spin from the lower energy state to the higher energy state.

  • secondary structure

    The threedimensional conformations of localized regions of a protein, including helices and b-pleated sheets.

  • sp-hybridized

    Atomic orbitals that are achieved by mathematically averaging one s orbital with only one p orbital to form two hybridized atomic orbitals.
