Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • alkynes

    Compounds containing a carbon-carbon triple bond.

  • alkynide ion

    The conjugate base of a terminal alkyne.

  • alpha (a) helix

    For proteins, a feature of secondary structure that forms when a portion of the protein twists into a spiral.

  • Androgen

    A steroid hormone, such as testosterone, that mediates the development of sexual characteristics of males.

  • Antiaromatic compound

    A monocyclic compound that is planar or nearly so, has one 2p orbital on each atom of the ring, and has 4n p electrons in the cyclic arrangement of overlapping 2p orbitals, where n is an integer. Antiaromatic compounds are especially unstable

  • Avogadro‚Äôs number (NA)

    The number of 12C atoms in exactly 12 g of 12C; it equals 6.022 * 1023 mol-1. (Section 3.4)

  • bimolecular

    For mechanisms, a step that involves two chemical entities.

  • bridgeheads

    In a bicyclic system, the carbon atoms where the rings are fused together.

  • chemical energy.

    Energy stored within the structural units of chemical substances. (6.1)

  • Cis

    A prefi x meaning on the same side

  • Deactivating group

    Any substituent on a benzene ring that causes the rate of electrophilic aromatic substitution to be lower than that for benzene.

  • E

    For alkenes, a stereodescriptorthat indicates that the two priority groups are on opposite sides of the p bond.

  • elimination

    A reaction involving the loss of a leaving group and formation of a p bond.

  • ether

    A compound in which two hydrocarbon groups are bonded to one oxygen. (Section 24.4)

  • Fischer esterification

    A process in which a carboxylic acid is converted into an ester when treated with an alcohol in the presence of an acid catalyst.

  • Friedel-Crafts reaction

    An electrophilic aromatic substitution in which a hydrogen of an aromatic ring is replaced by an alkyl or acyl group.

  • glass

    An amorphous solid formed by fusion of SiO2, CaO, and Na2O. Other oxides may also be used to form glasses with differing characteristics. (Section 22.10)

  • mass spectrometry

    The study ofthe interaction between matter and an energysource other than electromagnetic radiation. Massspectrometry is used primarily to determine the molecular weight and molecular formula of a compound.

  • secondary structure

    The threedimensional conformations of localized regions of a protein, including helices and b-pleated sheets.

  • solid

    Matter that has both a definite shape and a definite volume. (Section 1.2)
