Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absorbance (A)

    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

  • Allylic

    Next to a carbon-carbon double bond.

  • alternating copolymers

    A copolymer that contains an alternating distribution of repeating units.

  • bond order

    The number of bonding electron pairs shared between two atoms, minus the number of antibonding electron pairs: bond order = (number of bonding electrons - number of antibonding electrons)/2. (Section 9.7)

  • bonding molecular orbital

    A molecular orbital in which the electron density is concentrated in the internuclear region. The energy of a bonding molecular orbital is lower than the energy of the separate atomic orbitals from which it forms. (Section 9.7)

  • conjugated

    A compound in which two p bonds are separated from each other by exactly one s bond.

  • denatured protein.

    Protein that does not exhibit normal biological activities. (25.3)

  • Double helix

    A type of secondary structure of DNA molecules in which two anti parallel polynucleotide strands are coiled in a right-handed manner about the same axis

  • empirical formula

    A chemical formula that shows the kinds of atoms and their relative numbers in a substance in the smallest possible whole-number ratios. (Section 2.6)

  • fats

    Triglycerides that are solids atroom temperature.

  • Functional group

    An atom or group of atoms within a molecule that shows a characteristic set of physical and chemical properties

  • Glycol

    A compound with hydroxyl (!OH) groups on adjacent carbons.

  • Lewis symbol (electron-dot symbol)

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

  • molecular orbital (MO)

    An allowed state for an electron in a molecule. According to molecular-orbital theory, a molecular orbital is entirely analogous to an atomic orbital, which is an allowed state for an electron in an atom. Most bonding molecular orbitals can be classified as s or p, depending on the disposition of electron density with respect to the internuclear axis. (Section 9.7)

  • quantum mechanics

    A mathematical description of an electron that incorporates its wavelike properties.

  • radioisotope

    An isotope that is radioactive; that is, it is undergoing nuclear changes with emission of radiation. (Section 21.1)

  • redox (oxidation–reduction) reaction

    A reaction in which certain atoms undergo changes in oxidation states. The substance increasing in oxidation state is oxidized; the substance decreasing in oxidation state is reduced. (Section 4.4; Chapter 20: Introduction)

  • shielded

    In NMR spectroscopy,protons or carbon atoms whose surrounding electron density is rich.

  • strong activators

    Groups that strongly activate an aromatic ring toward electrophilic aromatic substitution, thereby significantly enhancing the rate of the reaction.

  • sulfonate ions

    Common leaving groups. Examples include tosylate, mesylate, and triflate ions.
