addition polymerization
Polymerization that occurs through coupling of monomers with one another, with no other products formed in the reaction. (Section 12.8)

bending
In IR spectroscopy, a type of vibration that generally produces a signal in the fingerprint region of an IR spectrum.

Codon
A triplet of nucleotides on mRNA that directs incorporation of a specifi c amino acid into a polypeptide sequence.

diatomic molecule
A molecule composed of only two atoms. (Section 2.6)

electromagnetic spectrum
Therange of all frequencies of electromagnetic radiation,which is arbitrarily divided into severalregions, most commonly by wavelength.

enthalpy of reaction
The enthalpy change associated with a chemical reaction. (Section 5.4)

equilibrium constant
The numerical value of the equilibriumconstant expression for a system at equilibrium. The equilibrium constant is most usually denoted by Kp for gasphase systems or Kc for solutionphase systems. (Section 15.2)

equilibriumconstant expression
The expression that describes the relationship among the concentrations (or partial pressures) of the substances present in a system at equilibrium. The numerator is obtained by multiplying the concentrations of the substances on the product side of the equation, each raised to a power equal to its coefficient in the chemical equation. The denominator similarly contains the concentrations of the substances on the reactant side of the equation. (Section 15.2)

gauche interaction
The steric interaction that results when two groups in a Newman projection are separated by a dihedral angle of 60°.

geminal
Two groups connected to the same carbon atom. For example, a geminal dihalide is a compound with two halogens connected to the same carbon atom.

kinetics
A term that refers to the rate of a reaction.

Lewis dot structure
The symbol of an element surrounded by a number of dots equal to the number of electrons in the valence shell of the atom

mass percentage
The number of grams of solute in each 100 g of solution. (Section 13.4)

Nucleophilic substitution
Any reaction in which one nucleophile is substituted for another at a tetravalent carbon atom.

oxymercurationdemercuration
A twostep process for the Markovnikov addition of water across an alkene. With this process, carbocation rearrangements do not occur.

pericylic reactions
Reactions that occur via a concerted process and do not involve either ionic or radical intermediates.

reducing agent
A compound that reduces another compound and in the process is itself oxidized. Sodium borohydride and lithium aluminum hydride are reducing agents.

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

symmetric stretching
In IR spectroscopy, when two bonds are stretching in phase with each other.

triplet
In NMR spectroscopy, a signal that is comprised of three peaks.
