Full solutions for Modern Chemistry: Student Edition 2006 | 1st Edition
A functional group characterized by two alkoxy (OR) groups connected to the same carbon atom.Acetals can be used as protecting groups for aldehydes or ketones.
The mass of an atom in atomic mass units. (3.1)
The volume of a fixed amount of gas maintained at constant temperature is inversely proportional to the gas pressure. (5.3)
The process by which a liquid rises in a tube because of a combination of adhesion to the walls of the tube and cohesion between liquid particles. (Section 11.3)
The scientific discipline that studies the composition, properties, and transformations of matter. (Chapter 1: Introduction)
An elimination reaction involving the loss of H and OH.
A compound containing a double bond (consisting of one or two C, N, or O atoms) that can react with a conjugated diene to give a Diels-Alder adduct.
A molecule with one end having a partial negative charge and the other end having a partial positive charge; a polar molecule. (Section 8.4)
The resonance-stabilized conjugate base of a ketone, aldehyde, or ester.
Hydrogens that have the same chemical environment
In mass spectrometry, when the molecular ion breaks apart into fragments.
The unit in which frequency is measured: s 21 (read “per second”).
Elements in the s and p blocks of the periodic table. (Section 6.9)
Polymers of high molecular weight that carry genetic information and control protein synthesis. (Section 24.10)
A compound in which one or more OH groups, and possibly additional oxygen atoms, are bonded to a central atom. (Section 16.10)
Quaternary (4°) ammonium ion
An ion in which nitrogen is bonded to four carbons and bears a positive charge
The stabilization associated with the delocalization of electrons via resonance.
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 counterclockwise sequence for 1-2-3 is designated as S.
sigma 1S2 molecular orbital
A molecular orbital that centers the electron density about an imaginary line passing through two nuclei. (Section 9.7)
An internal salt of an amino acid; the carboxylate is negatively charged, and the ammonium group is positively charged
