Full solutions for Modern Chemistry: Student Edition 2012 | 1st Edition
Polymerization that occurs through coupling of monomers with one another, with no other products formed in the reaction. (Section 12.8)
An organic compound containing at least one halogen.
Hydrocarbon compounds that contain a planar, cyclic arrangement of carbon atoms linked by both s and delocalized p bonds. (Section 24.2)
Covalent hydrides of boron. (Section 22.11)
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.
The breakdown of a compound into two or more components. (4.4)
The arrangement of electrons in the orbitals of an atom or molecule (Section 6.8)
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)
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)
A magneticfield generated by a spinning proton.
mean free path
The average distance traveled by a gas molecule between collisions. (Section 10.8)
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
Cleavage by light.
pi (p) bond
A bond formed from adjacent, overlapping p orbitals.
A ligand in which two or more donor atoms can coordinate to the same metal ion. (Section 23.3)
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.
A compound that prevents a radical chain process from either getting started or continuing.
Compounds containing silicon and oxygen, structurally based on SiO4 tetrahedra. (Section 22.10)
