Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • activation energy (Ea)

    The minimum energy needed for reaction; the height of the energy barrier to formation of products. (Section 14.5)

  • Anti conformation

    A conformation about a single bond in which two groups on adjacent carbons lie at a dihedral angle of 180°.

  • anti-periplanar

    A conformation in which a hydrogen atom and a leaving group are separated by a dihedral angle of approximately 180°.

  • cathode rays

    Streams of electrons that are produced when a high voltage is applied to electrodes in an evacuated tube. (Section 2.2)

  • cathode.

    The electrode at which reduction occurs. (18.2)

  • chemical changes

    Processes in which one or more substances are converted into other substances; also called chemical reactions. (Section 1.3)

  • Clemmensen reduction

    A reaction in which a carbonyl group is completely reduced and replaced with two hydrogen atoms.

  • critical pressure (Pc).

    The minimum pressure necessary to bring about liquefaction at the critical temperature. (11.8)

  • crystalline solid.

    A solid that possesses rigid and long-range order; its atoms, molecules, or ions occupy specific positions. (11.4)

  • Diastereomers

    Stereoisomers that are not mirror images of each other; refers to relationships among two or more objects

  • dimensional analysis

    A method of problem solving in which units are carried through all calculations. Dimensional analysis ensures that the final answer of a calculation has the desired units. (Section 1.6)

  • doping

    Incorporation of a hetero atom into a solid to change its electrical properties. For example, incorporation of P into Si. (Section 12.7)

  • Double helix

    A type of secondary structure of DNA molecules in which two anti parallel polynucleotide strands are coiled in a right-handed manner about the same axis

  • Formal charge

    The charge on an atom in a polyatomic ion or molecule

  • free induction decay

    In NMR spectroscopy, a complex signal which is a combination of all of the electrical impulses generated by each type of proton.

  • functional group

    An atom or group of atoms that imparts characteristic chemical properties to an organic compound. (Section 24.1)

  • Gabriel synthesis

    A method forpreparing primary amines that avoids formation of secondary and tertiary amines.

  • kinetic energy

    The energy that an object possesses by virtue of its motion. (Section 5.1)

  • molecular geometry

    The arrangement in space of the atoms of a molecule. (Section 9.2)

  • physiological pH

    The pH of blood (approximately 7.3).
