Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • addition polymerization

    Polymerization that occurs through coupling of monomers with one another, with no other products formed in the reaction. (Section 12.8)

  • alkyl halide

    An organic compound containing at least one halogen.

  • aromatic hydrocarbons

    Hydrocarbon compounds that contain a planar, cyclic arrangement of carbon atoms linked by both s and delocalized p bonds. (Section 24.2)

  • boranes

    Covalent hydrides of boron. (Section 22.11)

  • condensed structure

    A drawing style in which none of the bonds are drawn. Groups of atoms are clustered together when possible. For example, isopropanol has two CH3 groups, both of which are connected to the central carbon atom, shown like this: (CH3)2CHOH.

  • decomposition reaction.

    The breakdown of a compound into two or more components. (4.4)

  • electron configuration

    The arrangement of electrons in the orbitals of an atom or molecule (Section 6.8)

  • Henry’s law

    A law stating that the concentration of a gas in a solution, Sg, is proportional to the pressure of gas over the solution: Sg = kPg. (Section 13.3)

  • internal energy

    The total energy possessed by a system. When a system undergoes a change, the change in internal energy, ?E, is defined as the heat, q, added to the system, plus the work, w, done on the system by its surroundings: ?E = q + w. (Section 5.2)

  • magnetic moment

    A magneticfield generated by a spinning proton.

  • mean free path

    The average distance traveled by a gas molecule between collisions. (Section 10.8)

  • molar mass

    The mass of one mole of a substance in grams; it is numerically equal to the formula weight in atomic mass units. (Section 3.4)

  • N-Terminal amino acid

    The amino acid at the end of a polypeptide chain having the free !NH2 group

  • Photolysis

    Cleavage by light.

  • pi (p) bond

    A bond formed from adjacent, overlapping p orbitals.

  • polydentate ligand

    A ligand in which two or more donor atoms can coordinate to the same metal ion. (Section 23.3)

  • proton

    A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom. (Section 2.3)

  • 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.

  • radical inhibitor

    A compound that prevents a radical chain process from either getting started or continuing.

  • silicates

    Compounds containing silicon and oxygen, structurally based on SiO4 tetrahedra. (Section 22.10)
