Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • adsorption

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

  • Alkoxy group

    An !OR group where R is an alkyl group

  • Antibonding molecular orbital

    A molecular orbital in which electrons have a higher energy than they would in isolated atomic orbitals

  • autoionization

    The process whereby water spontaneously forms low concentrations of H+1aq2 and OH-1aq2 ions by proton transfer from one water molecule to another. (Section 16.3)

  • complex ion.

    An ion containing a central metal cation bonded to one or more molecules or ions. (16.10)

  • critical pressure (Pc).

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

  • Curved arrow

    A symbol used to show the redistribution of valence electrons in resonance contributing structures or reactions, symbolizing movement of two electrons

  • dissolving metal reduction

    A reaction in which an alkyne is converted into a trans alkene.

  • elastomers

    Polymers that return to their original shape after being stretched.

  • extensive property

    A property that depends on the amount of material considered; for example, mass or volume. (Section 1.3)

  • Hemiacetal

    A molecule containing an !OH and an !OR or !OAr group bonded to the same carbon

  • mass spectrum

    In mass spectrometry,a plot that shows the relative abundance ofeach cation that was detected.

  • radical

    A chemical entity with an unpaired electron.

  • rate-determining step

    The slowest elementary step in a reaction mechanism. (Section 14.6)

  • Reaction mechanism

    A step-by-step description of how a chemical reaction occurs.

  • second law of thermodynamics

    A statement of our experience that there is a direction to the way events occur in nature. When a process occurs spontaneously in one direction, it is nonspontaneous in the reverse direction. It is possible to state the second law in many different forms, but they all relate back to the same idea about spontaneity. One of the most common statements found in chemical contexts is that in any spontaneous process the entropy of the universe increases. (Section 19.2)

  • Steroid

    A plant or animal lipid having the characteristic tetracyclic ring structure of the steroid nucleus, namely three sixmembered rings and one fi ve-membered ring.

  • thermodynamic control

    A reaction for which the ratio of products is determined solely by the distribution of energy among the products.

  • torsional strain

    The difference in energy between staggered and eclipsed conformations (for example, in ethane).

  • Unsaturated hydrocarbon

    A hydrocarbon containing one or more carbon-carbon double or triple bonds. The three classes of unsaturated hydrocarbons are alkenes, alkynes, and arenes
