A radical reaction that achieves installation of a bromine atom at an allylic position.
A unit of pressure equal to 760 torr; 1 atm = 101.325 kPa. (Section 10.2) atom The smallest representative particle of an element. (Sections 1.1 and 2.1)
Organic material that bacteria are able to oxidize. (Section 18.4)
The measurement of heat changes. (6.5)
A compound containing a carboxyl, !COOH, group.
A compound that contains the ¬COOH functional group. (Sections 16.10 and 24.4)
An atom or group of atoms bearing a positive charge.
A reaction in which an element reacts with a compound, displacing an element from it. (Section 4.4)
Any process with a positive DH (the system receives energy from the surroundings).
A thermodynamic function associated with the number of different equivalent energy states or spatial arrangements in which a system may be found. It is a thermodynamic state function, which means that once we specify the conditions for a system—that is, the temperature, pressure, and so on—the entropy is defined. (Section 19.2)
The tendency of nonpolar groups to cluster so as to shield them from contact with an aqueous environment.
Lewis symbol (electron-dot symbol)
The chemical symbol for an element, with a dot for each valence electron. (Section 8.1)
limiting reactant (limiting reagent)
The reactant present in the smallest stoichiometric quantity in a mixture of reactants; the amount of product that can form is limited by the complete consumption of the limiting reactant. (Section 3.7)
Two liquids that can be mixed with each other in any proportion.
An electrically charged group of two or more atoms. (Section 2.7)
A large molecule of high molecular mass, formed by the joining together, or polymerization, of a large number of molecules of low molecular mass. The individual molecules forming the polymer are called monomers. (Sections 12.1 and 12.8)
Secondary structure of nucleic acids
The ordered arrangement of nucleic acid strands
The difference in energy between staggered and eclipsed conformations (for example, in ethane).
For mechanisms, astep that involves only one chemical entity.
Vibrational infrared region
A common type of spin-spin coupling involving the H atoms on two C atoms that are bonded to each other.
