A disordered, noncrystalline region in the solid state of a polymer.
Tables of data on absorption patterns of functional groups.
A measure of the ability of an atom that is bonded to another atom to attract electrons to itself. (Section 8.4)
From the Greek meaning electron loving. Any species that can accept a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond; alternatively, a Lewis acid.
The capacity to do work or to transfer heat. (Section 5.1)
Diastereomers that differ from each other in the configuration of only one chirality center.
