A type of rearrangement in which an atom or group of atoms with its bonding electrons moves from one atom to an adjacent electron-defi cient atom.
Hormones that are secreted by the cortex (the outer layer) of the adrenal glands. Adrenocortical hormones are typically characterized by a carbonyl group or hydroxyl group at C11 of the steroid skeleton.
basic anhydride (basic oxide)
An oxide that forms a base when added to water; soluble metal oxides are basic anhydrides. (Section 22.5)
bonding atomic radius
The radius of an atom as defined by the distances separating it from other atoms to which it is chemically bonded. (Section 7.3)
The amount of acid or base a buffer can neutralize before the pH begins to change appreciably. (Section 17.2)
Processes in which one or more substances are converted into other substances; also called chemical reactions. (Section 1.3)
A substance composed of two or more elements united chemically in definite proportions. (Section 1.2)
The metal ion and its surrounding ligands. (Section 23.2)
A device in which a nonspontaneous oxidation–reduction reaction is caused to occur by passage of current under a sufficient external electrical potential. (Section 20.9)
Gibbs free energy (G)
The ultimate arbiter of the spontaneity of a reaction, where DG = DH - T DS.
A cyclic ester.
Points in an atom at which the electron density is zero. For example, the node in a 2s orbital is a spherical surface. (Section 6.6)
A compound with the structure R2CRN!OH.
On an aromatic ring, the C4position.
Compounds with the general structure R!O!O!R.
A complex mixture of undesirable substances produced by the action of sunlight on an urban atmosphere polluted with automobile emissions. The major starting ingredients are nitrogen oxides and organic substances, notably olefins and aldehydes. (Section 18.2)
The structure of a protein resulting from the clustering of several individual protein chains into a final specific shape. (Section 24.7)
rare earth element
See lanthanide element. (Sections 6.8 and 6.9)
A term used to indicate that a certain volume of a compound will dissolve in a specified amount of a liquid at room temperature.
A polymer that can be molded when it is fi rst prepared, but once cooled, hardens irreversibly and cannot be remelted.
