Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • activation energy (Ea)

    The minimum energy needed for reaction; the height of the energy barrier to formation of products. (Section 14.5)

  • addition reaction.

    A reaction in which one molecule adds to another. (24.2)

  • angstrom

    A common non-SI unit of length, denoted Å, that is used to measure atomic dimensions: 1Å = 10-10 m. (Section 2.3)

  • constitutional isomers

    Compounds that have the same molecular formula but differ in the way the atoms are connected.

  • Cycloaddition reaction

    A reaction in which two reactants add together in a single step to form a cyclic product. The best known of these is the Diels-Alder reaction

  • dextrorotatory, or merely dextro or d

    A term used to label a chiral molecule that rotates the plane of polarization of plane-polarized light to the right (clockwise). (Section 23.4)

  • effusion

    The escape of a gas through an orifice or hole. (Section 10.8)

  • enzymes

    Important biological molecules that catalyze virtually all cellular processes.

  • halohydrin formation

    A reaction which involves the addition of a halogen and a hydroxyl group (OH) across an alkene.

  • Hell-Volhard-Zelinsky reaction

    A reaction in which a carboxylic acid undergoes a-halogenation when treated with bromine in the presence of PBr3.

  • homolitic bond cleavage

    Bond breaking that results in the formation of unchanged species called radicals.

  • isoelectronic series

    A series of atoms, ions, or molecules having the same number of electrons. (Section 7.3)

  • Levorotatory

    Refers to a substance that rotates the plane of polarized light to the left.

  • Michael acceptor

    The electrophile in a Michael reaction.

  • Orbital

    A region of space that can hold two electrons

  • overall reaction order

    The sum of the reaction orders of all the reactants appearing in the rate expression when the rate can be expressed as rate = k3A4a 3B4b... . (Section 14.3)

  • Phenol

    A compound that contains an !OH bonded to a benzene ring; a benzenol.

  • resonance structures

    A series of structures that are melded together (conceptually) to circumvent the inadequacies of bond-line drawings.

  • single bond

    A covalent bond involving one electron pair. (Section 8.3)

  • waxes

    High-molecular-weight esters that are constructed from carboxylic acids and alcohols.
