Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • a-Hydrogen

    A hydrogen on a carbon alpha to a carbonyl group.

  • alpha (a) rays.

    Helium ions with a positive charge of 12. (2.2)

  • complex lipid

    A lipid that readily undergoes hydrolysis in aqueous acid or base to produce smaller fragments.

  • delocalized electrons

    Electrons that are spread over a number of atoms in a molecule or a crystal rather than localized on a single atom or a pair of atoms. (Section 9.6)

  • ester

    An organic compound that has an OR group attached to a carbonyl; it is the product of a reaction between a carboxylic acid and an alcohol. (Section 24.4)

  • ether

    A compound in which two hydrocarbon groups are bonded to one oxygen. (Section 24.4)

  • Excited state

    A state of a system at higher energy than the ground state.

  • gray (Gy)

    The SI unit for radiation dose

  • Heat of reaction (DH0 )

    The difference in enthalpy between reactants and products. If the enthalpy of products is lower than that of the reactants, heat is released and the reaction is exothermic. If the enthalpy of the products is higher than that of the reactants, energy is absorbed, and the reaction is endothermic

  • Heterocyclic amine

    An amine in which nitrogen is one of the atoms of a ring

  • Ketone

    A compound containing a carbonyl group bonded to two carbons.

  • node

    In atomic and molecular orbitals, a location where the value of y is zero.

  • normal melting point

    The melting point at 1 atm pressure. (Section 11.6)

  • partial pressure

    The pressure exerted by a particular gas in a mixture. (Section 10.6)

  • polyprotic acid

    A substance capable of dissociating more than one proton in water; H2SO4 is an example. (Section 16.6)

  • positron emission

    A nuclear decay process where a positron, a particle with the same mass as an electron but with a positive charge, symbol 0+1e, or b+ is emitted from the nucleus. (Section 21.1)

  • 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)

  • Reductive amination

    A method for preparing substituted amines by treating an aldehyde or ketone with an amine in the presence of a reducing agent

  • Robinson annulation

    The combination of a Michael addition followed by an aldol condensation to form a ring.

  • step-growth polymers

    Polymers that are formed under conditions in which the individual monomers react with each other to form oligomers, which are then joined together to form polymers.
