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)

  • adsorption

    The binding of molecules to a surface. (Section 14.7)

  • alcohol.

    An organic compound containing the hydroxyl group —OH. (24.4)

  • Anomers

    Carbohydrates that differ in confi guration only at their anomeric carbons.

  • antibonding MO

    A high-energy molecular orbital resulting from the destructive interference between atomic orbitals.

  • cathodic protection

    A means of protecting a metal against corrosion by making it the cathode in a voltaic cell. This can be achieved by attaching a more easily oxidized metal, which serves as an anode, to the metal to be protected. (Section 20.8)

  • copolymer

    A complex polymer resulting from the polymerization of two or more chemically different monomers. (Section 12.8)

  • covalent-network solids

    Solids in which the units that make up the three-dimensional network are joined by covalent bonds. (Section 12.1)

  • critical pressure (Pc).

    The minimum pressure necessary to bring about liquefaction at the critical temperature. (11.8)

  • electrolyte

    A solute that produces ions in solution; an electrolytic solution conducts an electric current. (Section 4.1)

  • fuel cell

    A voltaic cell that utilizes the oxidation of a conventional fuel, such as H2 or CH4, in the cell reaction. (Section 20.7)

  • Ground state

    The lowest energy state of a system.

  • hydration

    A reaction in which a proton and a hydroxyl group (OH) are added across a p bond.

  • liquid

    Matter that has a distinct volume but no specific shape. (Section 1.2)

  • peptide bond

    A bond formed between two amino acids. (Section 24.7)

  • regioselective

    A reaction that can produce two or more constitutional isomers but nevertheless produces one as the major product.

  • Regioselective reaction

    An addition or substitution reaction in which one of two or more possible products is formed in preference to all others that might be formed.

  • sigma 1S2 molecular orbital

    A molecular orbital that centers the electron density about an imaginary line passing through two nuclei. (Section 9.7)

  • Staggered conformation

    A conformation about a carbon-carbon single bond in which the atoms or groups on one carbon are as far apart as possible from atoms or groups on an adjacent carbon.

  • tetrahedral intermediate

    An intermediate with tetrahedral geometry. This type of intermediate is formed when a nucleophile attacks the carbonyl group of a carboxylic acid derivative.
