Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • acid rain

    Rainwater that has become excessively acidic because of absorption of pollutant oxides, notably SO3, produced by human activities. (Section 18.2)

  • Androgen

    A steroid hormone, such as testosterone, that mediates the development of sexual characteristics of males.

  • angle strain

    The increase in energy associated with a bond angle that has deviated from the preferred angle of 109.5°.

  • biodegradable polymers

    Polymers that can be broken down by enzymes produced by soil microorganisms.

  • calorimetry

    The experimental measurement of heat produced in chemical and physical processes. (Section 5.5)

  • colloid.

    A dispersion of particles of one substance (the dispersed phase) throughout a dispersing medium made of another substance. (12.8)

  • common-ion effect

    A shift of an equilibrium induced by an ion common to the equilibrium. For example, added Na2SO4 decreases the solubility of the slightly soluble salt BaSO4, or added NaF decreases the percent ionization of HF. (Section 17.1)

  • coordination number

    The number of adjacent atoms to which an atom is directly bonded. In a complex the coordination number of the metal ion is the number of donor atoms to which it is bonded. (Sections 12.37 and 24.2)

  • denaturation

    A process during which a protein unfolds under conditions of mild heating.

  • Hydroboration-oxidation

    A method for converting an alkene to an alcohol. The alkene is treated with borane (BH3) to give a trialkylborane, which is then oxidized with alkaline hydrogen peroxide to give an alcohol

  • ion–dipole force

    The force that exists between an ion and a neutral polar molecule that possesses a permanent dipole moment. (Section 11.2)

  • Molecular ion (M1)

    The radical cation formed by removal of a single electron from a parent molecule in a mass spectrometer.

  • oils

    Triglycerides that are liquids at room temperature.

  • oxirane

    A cyclic ether containing a three-membered ring system. Also called an epoxide.

  • Phospholipid

    A lipid containing glycerol esterifi ed with two molecules of fatty acid and one molecule of phosphoric acid.

  • R

    A term used to designate the configuration of a chirality center, determined in the following way: Each of the four groups is assigned a priority, and the molecule is then rotated (if necessary) so that the #4 group is directed behind the page (on a dash). A clockwise sequence for 1-2-3 is designated as R.

  • radical initiator

    A compound with a weak bond that undergoes homolytic bond cleavage with great ease, producing radicals that can initiate a radical chain process.

  • Reaction mechanism

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

  • syn addition

    An addition reaction in which two groups are added to the same face of a p bond.

  • ylide

    A compound with two oppositely charged atoms adjacent to each other.
