Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • alkoxy substituent

    An OR group.

  • amino acid residue

    The individual repeating units in a polypeptide chain or protein.

  • amino acids.

    A compound that contains at least one amino group and at least one carboxyl group. (25.3)

  • annulenes

    Compounds consisting of a single ring containing a fully conjugated p system. Benzene is [6]annulene.

  • Anomers

    Carbohydrates that differ in confi guration only at their anomeric carbons.

  • Cis, trans isomers

    Stereoisomers that have the same connectivity but a different arrangement of their atoms in space as a result of the presence of either a ring or a carboncarbon double bond.

  • degree of unsaturation

    The absence of two hydrogen atoms associated with a ring or a p bond.

  • heat of combustion

    The heat given off during a reaction in which an alkane reacts with oxygen to produce CO2 and water.

  • Heterocyclic aromatic amine

    An amine in which nitrogen is one of the atoms of an aromatic ring.

  • imine

    A compound containing a CRN bond.

  • ion–dipole force

    The force that exists between an ion and a neutral polar molecule that possesses a permanent dipole moment. (Section 11.2)

  • keto-enol tautomerization

    The equilibrium that is established between an enol and a ketone in either acid-catalyzed or basecatalyzed conditions.

  • Lewis acid

    A compound capable offunctioning as an electron pair acceptor.

  • pi 1P2 bond

    A covalent bond in which electron density is concentrated above and below the internuclear axis. (Section 9.6)

  • polyvinyl chloride, (PVC)

    A polymer formed from the polymerization of vinyl chloride (H2CRCHCl).

  • prostaglandins

    Lipids that contain 20 carbon atoms and are characterized by a five-membered ring with two side chains.

  • Quaternary structure

    The arrangement of polypeptide monomers into a noncovalently bonded aggregate.

  • Regioselective reaction

    An addition or substitution reaction in which one of two or more possible products is formed in preference to all others that might be formed.

  • Secondary (2°) amine

    An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to two carbons and one hydrogen

  • spin-pairing energy

    The energy required to pair an electron with another electron occupying an orbital. (Section 23.6)
