Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 1,3-diaxial interaction

    Steric interactions that occur between axial substituents in a chair conformation.

  • Claisen condensation

    A nucleophilic acyl substitution reaction in which the nucleophile is an ester enolate and the electrophile is an ester.

  • enolate

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

  • excited state

    A state that is achieved when a compound absorbs energy.

  • frequency

    The number of times per second that one complete wavelength passes a given point. (Section 6.1)

  • galvanic cell

    See voltaic cell. (Section 20.3)

  • geometric isomerism

    A form of isomerism in which compounds with the same type and number of atoms and the same chemical bonds have different spatial arrangements of these atoms and bonds. (Sections 23.4 and 24.4)

  • Homolytic bond cleavage

    Cleavage of a bond so that each fragment retains one electron; formation of radicals.

  • hydronium ion 1H3O+2

    The predominant form of the proton in aqueous solution. (Section 16.2)

  • Lewis structure

    A representation of covalent bonding in a molecule that is drawn using Lewis symbols. Shared electron pairs are shown as lines, and unshared electron pairs are shown as pairs of dots. Only the valence-shell electrons are shown. (Section 8.3)

  • Messenger RNA (mRNA)

    A ribonucleic acid that carries coded genetic information from DNA to the ribosomes for the synthesis of proteins

  • Pi (p) bond

    A covalent bond formed by the overlap of parallel 2p orbitals.

  • 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.

  • Raoult’s law

    A law stating that the partial pressure of a solvent over a solution, Psolution, is given by the vapor pressure of the pure solvent, P° solvent, times the mole fraction of a solvent in the solution, Xsolvent: Psolution = XsolventP° solvent. (Section 13.5)

  • rate constant

    A constant of proportionality between the reaction rate and the concentrations of reactants that appear in the rate law. (Section 14.3)

  • regioselective

    A reaction that can produce two or more constitutional isomers but nevertheless produces one as the major product.

  • Resolution

    Separation of a racemic mixture into its enantiomers; in mass spectrometry, a measure of how well a mass spectrometer separates ions of different mass.

  • Restriction endonuclease

    An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of a particular phosphodiester bond within a DNA strand.

  • Thermochemistry

    The study of the energy of chemical structures.
