Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • bromohydrin

    A compound containing a Br group and a hydroxyl group (OH) on adjacent carbon atoms.

  • Chain initiation

    A step in a chain reaction characterized by the formation of reactive intermediates (radicals, anions, or cations) from nonradical or noncharged molecules

  • coordinate covalent bond.

    A bond in which the pair of electrons is supplied by one of the two bonded atoms; also called a dative bond. (9.9)

  • covalent bond.

    A bond in which two electrons are shared by two atoms. (9.4)

  • diazonium salt

    An ionic compound that is formed upon treatment of a primary amine with NaNO2 and HCl.

  • disulfide

    A compound with the structure R!S!S!R.

  • electronic charge

    The negative charge carried by an electron; it has a magnitude of 1.602 * 10-19 C. (Section 2.3)

  • enantiomers

    Two mirror-image molecules of a chiral substance. The enantiomers are nonsuperimposable. (Section 23.4)

  • enolate

    The resonance-stabilized conjugate base of a ketone, aldehyde, or ester.

  • Gibbs free energy (G)

    The ultimate arbiter of the spontaneity of a reaction, where DG = DH - T DS.

  • hemiacetal

    A compound containing a hydroxyl group (OH) and an alkoxy group (OR) connected to the same carbon atom.

  • hydride shift

    A type of carbocation rearrangement that involves the migration of a hydride ion (H-).

  • hydrophilic

    Water attracting. The term is often used to describe a type of colloid. (Section 13.6)

  • Lewis symbol (electron-dot symbol)

    The chemical symbol for an element, with a dot for each valence electron. (Section 8.1)

  • Mass spectrum

    A plot of the relative abundance of ions versus their mass-to-charge ratio

  • photodissociation

    The breaking of a molecule into two or more neutral fragments as a result of absorption of light. (Section 18.2)

  • positron emission

    A nuclear decay process where a positron, a particle with the same mass as an electron but with a positive charge, symbol 0+1e, or b+ is emitted from the nucleus. (Section 21.1)

  • radical

    A chemical entity with an unpaired electron.

  • Secondary structure of nucleic acids

    The ordered arrangement of nucleic acid strands

  • Sigma (s) molecular orbital

    A molecular orbital in which electron density is concentrated between two nuclei, along the axis joining them, and is cylindrically symmetrical
