A carbocation in which an allylic carbon bears the positive charge.
Compounds containing a nitrogen atom that is connected to one, two, or three alkyl or aryl groups.
Hydrocarbon compounds that contain a planar, cyclic arrangement of carbon atoms linked by both s and delocalized p bonds. (Section 24.2)
At constant pressure and temperature, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles of the gas present. (5.3)
An sp3 -hybridized carbon bonded to a benzene ring
A unit of energy; it is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 g of water by 1 °C from 14.5 °C to 15.5 °C. A related unit is the joule: 1 cal = 4.184 J. (Section 5.1)
An imaginary network of points on which the repeating motif of a solid may be imagined to be laid down so that the structure of the crystal is obtained. The motif may be a single atom or a group of atoms. Each lattice point represents an identical environment in the crystal. (Section 12.2)
A process during which a protein unfolds under conditions of mild heating.
For a reaction, a state in which there is no longer an observable change in the concentrations of reactants and products.
Heat of reaction (DH0 )
The difference in enthalpy between reactants and products. If the enthalpy of products is lower than that of the reactants, heat is released and the reaction is exothermic. If the enthalpy of the products is higher than that of the reactants, energy is absorbed, and the reaction is endothermic
From the Greek, meaning water-fearing.
Atoms of the same element containing different numbers of neutrons and therefore having different masses. (Section 2.3)
An abbreviated way to draw structural formulas in which vertices and line endings represent carbons
In nomenclature, a numberused to identify the location of a substituent.
Molecular orbital (MO) theory
A theory of chemical bonding in which electrons in molecules occupy molecular orbitals that extend over the entire molecule and are formed by the combination of the atomic orbitals that make up the molecule
On an aromatic ring, the C2 position.
A substance made up of many monosaccharide units joined together. (Section 24.8)
The energy that an object possesses as a result of its composition or its position with respect to another object. (Section 5.1)
radioactive decay chain
A series of nuclear reactions that begins with an unstable nucleus and terminates with a stable one. Also called nuclear disintegration series. (Section 21.2)
A term used to indicate that a certain volume of a compound will dissolve in a specified amount of a liquid at room temperature.
