A pericyclic reaction, also called a Diels-Alder reaction, that takes place between two different p systems, one of which is associated with four atoms while the other is associated with two atoms.
Reduction of the C"O group of an aldehyde or ketone to a CH2 group using Zn(Hg) and HCl
A polymer,that is formed via a condensation reaction.
A neutral species containing one or more complex ions. (23.3)
A carbohydrate for whichthe chirality center farthest from the carbonylgroup will have an OH group pointing to theright in the Fischer projection.
A unit of measure fordipole moments, where 1 debye = 10-18 esu×cm.
A chemical formula that shows the kinds of atoms and their relative numbers in a substance in the smallest possible whole-number ratios. (Section 2.6)
In Diels-Alder reactions that produce bicyclic structures, the positions that are syn to the larger bridge.
A reaction in which the enthalpy of the products is higher than the enthalpy of the reactants; a reaction in which heat is absorbed
Strands of a polymer that are generated when the polymer is heated, forced through small holes, and then cooled.
Gibbs free energy
A thermodynamic state function that combines enthalpy and entropy, in the form G = H - TS. For a change occurring at constant temperature and pressure, the change in free energy is ?G = ?H - T?S. (Section 19.5)
A carbanion with the structure RMgX.
A reaction with water. When a cation or anion reacts with water, it changes the pH. (Sections 16.9 and 24.4)
A drawing style that is designed to show the conformation of a molecule.
nonpolar covalent bond
A covalent bond in which the electrons are shared equally. (Section 8.4) normal boiling point The boiling point at 1 atm pressure. (Section 11.5)
Polymers of high molecular weight that carry genetic information and control protein synthesis. (Section 24.10)
Having no net overlap.
An intermediate with a positively charged oxygen atom.
Biological damage caused by photosensitizers, light, and oxygen, used to kill tumor and other cells.
A unimolecular nucleophilic substitution reaction.
