A quantitative measure of the extent to which a compound absorbs radiation of a particular wavelength. A 5 log (I0/I ) where I0 is the incident radiation and I is the transmitted radiation
Members of group 1A in the periodic table. (Section 7.7)
A reaction in which two species are involved in the rate-determining step.
A substance capable of accepting a proton. (4.3)
A class of substances formed from polyhydroxy aldehydes or ketones. (Section 24.8)
In gas chromatography, a plot that identifies the retention time of each compound in the mixture.
Similarities between pairs of elements in different groups and periods of the periodic table. (8.6)
The region of an IR spectrum that contains signals resulting from the vibrational excitation of most single bonds (stretching and bending).
CFCs that were heavily used for a wide variety of commercial applications, including as refrigerants, as propellants, in the production of foam insulation, as fire-fighting materials, and many other useful applications.
Messenger RNA (mRNA)
A ribonucleic acid that carries coded genetic information from DNA to the ribosomes for the synthesis of proteins
A group of molecules arranged in a sphere such that the surface of the sphere is comprised of polar groups, rendering the micelle water soluble.
The observation that second-row elements (C, N, O, and F) will form the necessary number of bonds so as to achieve a full valence shell (eight electrons).
Order of precedence of functions
A ranking of functional groups in order of priority for the purposes of IUPAC nomenclature.
When electromagnetic radiation is viewed as a particle, an individual packet of energy.
Small molecules that are trapped between polymer chains where they function as lubricants, preventing the polymer from being brittle.
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)
R (Section 3.3)
From the Latin, rectus, straight, correct; used in the R,S convention to show that the order of priority of groups on a chiral center is clockwise.
A compound with a weak bond that undergoes homolytic bond cleavage with great ease, producing radicals that can initiate a radical chain process.
A term used to designate the configuration of a chirality center, determined in the following way: Each of the four groups is assigned a priority, and the molecule is then rotated (if necessary) so that the #4 group is directed behind the page (on a dash). A counterclockwise sequence for 1-2-3 is designated as S.
Rules for predicting the wavelength of maximum absorption for a compound with extended conjugation.
