An alkane containing two rings that share two carbons
A class of substances formed from polyhydroxy aldehydes or ketones. (Section 24.8)
A state in which the rates of the forward and reverse reactions are equal. (14.1)
A dispersion of particles of one substance (the dispersed phase) throughout a dispersing medium made of another substance. (12.8)
A spectrum that contains radiation distributed over all wavelengths. (Section 6.3)
A reaction in which two reactants add together in a single step to form a cyclic product. The best known of these is the Diels-Alder reaction
A process during which a protein unfolds under conditions of mild heating.
An intramolecular Claisen condensation.
A characteristic group of atoms/bonds that possess a predictable chemical behavior.
An amorphous solid formed by fusion of SiO2, CaO, and Na2O. Other oxides may also be used to form glasses with differing characteristics. (Section 22.10)
In radical reactions, a type of arrow-pushing pattern in which a hydrogen atom is abstracted by a radical, generating a new radical.
An OH group.
The total energy possessed by a system. When a system undergoes a change, the change in internal energy, ?E, is defined as the heat, q, added to the system, plus the work, w, done on the system by its surroundings: ?E = q + w. (Section 5.2)
London dispersion forces
Attractive forces between transient dipole moments, observed in alkanes.
Anything that occupies space and has mass; the physical material of the universe. (Section 1.1)
Refers to groups occupying l,4-positions on a benzene ring
primary alkyl halide
An organohalide in which the alpha (a) position is connected to only one alkyl group.
An intermediate that has both a negative charge and an unpaired electron.
redox (oxidation–reduction) reaction
A reaction in which certain atoms undergo changes in oxidation states. The substance increasing in oxidation state is oxidized; the substance decreasing in oxidation state is reduced. (Section 4.4; Chapter 20: Introduction)
The combination of a Michael addition followed by an aldol condensation to form a ring.
