The point in a titration at which the added solute reacts completely with the solute present in the solution. (Section 4.6)
frontier orbital theory
The analysis of a reaction using MO theory, where only the frontier orbitals (HOMO and LUMO) are considered.
Haloalkane (alkyl halide)
A compound containing a halogen atom covalently bonded to an sp3 -hybridized carbon atom. Given the symbol R!X.
