A type of secondary structure in which a section of polypeptide chain coils into a spiral, most commonly a right-handed spiral.
An unsaturated hydrocarbon that contains one or more carbon-carbon triple bonds.
Hydrocarbon compounds that contain a planar, cyclic arrangement of carbon atoms linked by both s and delocalized p bonds. (Section 24.2)
atomic mass unit (amu)
A unit based on the value of exactly 12 amu for the mass of the isotope of carbon that has six protons and six neutrons in the nucleus. (Sections 2.3 and 3.3)
At constant pressure and temperature, the volume of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles of the gas present. (5.3)
A polymer that is formed under conditions in which the monomers do not react directly with each other, but rather, each monomer is added to the growing chain, one at a time.
A notation that uses chemical symbols with numerical subscripts to convey the relative proportions of atoms of the different elements in a substance. (Section 2.6)
Intermolecular forces resulting from attractions between induced dipoles. Also called London dispersion forces. (Section 11.2)
The use of electrolysis to reduce or refine metals. (Section 20.9)
A cyclic ether in which oxygen is one atom of a three-membered ring
A compound with the structure R2CRN!NH2.
A reaction that involves the participation of ions as reactants, intermediates, or products.
A device inwhich a compound is first vaporized and convertedinto ions, which are then separated anddetected.
A system for naming organic compounds.
Light for which all photons have the same polarization, generally formed by passing light through a polarizing filter.
The structure that arises when a protein consists of two or more folded polypeptide chains that aggregate to form one protein complex.
One of the four arrow-pushing patterns for ionic reactions.
Valence Bond Theory
A model of bonding that places electron pairs between adjacent atoms to create bonds.
A rule stating that the major product of a b-elimination reaction is the most stable alkene; that is, it is the alkene with the greatest number of substituents on the carboncarbon double bond
