Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • aldol condensation

    An aldol addition followed by dehydration to give an a,bunsaturated ketone or aldehyde.

  • alkene

    A compound that possesses a carbon-carbon double bond.

  • cellulose

    A polysaccharide of glucose; it is the major structural element in plant matter. (Section 24.8)

  • chirality center

    A tetrahedral carbon atom bearing four different groups.

  • dipole moment

    A measure of the separation and magnitude of the positive and negative charges in polar molecules. (Section 8.4)

  • doping

    Incorporation of a hetero atom into a solid to change its electrical properties. For example, incorporation of P into Si. (Section 12.7)

  • enantiomers

    Two mirror-image molecules of a chiral substance. The enantiomers are nonsuperimposable. (Section 23.4)

  • fission

    The splitting of a large nucleus into two smaller ones. (Section 21.6)

  • Functional group

    An atom or group of atoms within a molecule that shows a characteristic set of physical and chemical properties

  • immiscible liquids

    Liquids that do not dissolve in one another to a significant extent. (Section 13.3)

  • mass

    A measure of the amount of material in an object. It measures the resistance of an object to being moved. In SI units, mass is measured in kilograms. (Section 1.4)

  • mass defect

    The difference between the mass of a nucleus and the total masses of the individual nucleons that it contains. (Section 21.6)

  • net ionic equation

    A chemical equation for a solution reaction in which soluble strong electrolytes are written as ions and spectator ions are omitted. (Section 4.2)

  • Newman projection

    A way to view a molecule by looking along a carbon-carbon single bond

  • Pauli exclusion principle

    A rule stating that no two electrons in an atom may have the same four quantum numbers (n, l, ml, and ms). As a reflection of this principle, there can be no more than two electrons in any one atomic orbital. (Section 6.7)

  • phase change

    The conversion of a substance from one state of matter to another. The phase changes we consider are melting and freezing 1solid ? liquid2, sublimation and deposition, and vaporization and condensation 1liquid ? gas2. (Section 11.4)

  • Photolysis

    Cleavage by light.

  • Quantum mechanics

    The branch of science that studies the interaction of matter and radiation.

  • Specifi c rotation

    The observed rotation of the plane of polarized light when a sample is placed in a tube 1.0 dm in length and at a concentration of 1 g/mL for a solution. For a pure liquid, concentration is expressed in g/mL (density).

  • Steric hindrance

    The ability of groups, because of their size, to hinder access to a reaction site within a molecule.
