Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 1,2-elimination

    An elimination reaction in which a proton from the beta (b) position is removed together with the leaving group, forming a double bond.

  • acidic oxide (acidic anhydride)

    An oxide that either reacts with a base to form a salt or with water to form an acid. (Section 22.5)

  • chain-growth polymer

    A polymer that is formed under conditions in which the monomers do not react directly with each other, but rather, each monomer is added to the growing chain, one at a time.

  • constitutional isomers

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

  • Cycloalkane

    A saturated hydrocarbon that contains carbons joined to form a ring

  • degree of substitution

    For alkenes, a classification method that refers to the number of alkyl groups connected to the double bond.

  • Enantiomeric excess (ee)

    The difference between the percentage of two enantiomers in a mixture

  • Haloform

    A compound of the type CHX3 where X is a halogen.

  • homogeneous catalyst

    A catalyst that is in the same phase as the reactant substances. (Section 14.7)

  • imidazole

    A compound containing a five-membered ring that is similar to pyrrole but has one extra nitrogen atom at the 3 position.

  • Lewis structures

    A drawing style inwhich the electrons take center stage.linear polymer (Sect. 27.6): A polymer thathas only a minimal amount of branching or nobranching at all.

  • molarity

    The concentration of a solution expressed as moles of solute per liter of solution; abbreviated M. (Section 4.5)

  • node

    Points in an atom at which the electron density is zero. For example, the node in a 2s orbital is a spherical surface. (Section 6.6)

  • oxidation

    A reaction in which one compound undergoes an increase in oxidation state.

  • peptidases

    A variety of enzymes that selectively hydrolyze specific peptide bonds.

  • progestins

    Female sex hormones.

  • Radical cation

    A species formed when a neutral molecule loses one electron; it contains both an odd number of electrons and a positive charge.

  • tetrahedral

    The geometry of an atom with four bonds separated from each other by 109.5°.

  • thermodynamics

    The study of how energy is distributed under the influence of entropy. For chemists, the thermodynamics of a reaction specifically refers to the study of the relative energy levels of reactants and products.

  • Zwitterion

    An internal salt of an amino acid; the carboxylate is negatively charged, and the ammonium group is positively charged
