Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Annulene

    A cyclic hydrocarbon with a continuous alternation of single and double bonds.

  • Brønsted base.

    A substance capable of accepting a proton. (4.3)

  • Condensation polymerization

    A polymerization in which chain growth occurs in a stepwise manner between difunctional monomers. Also called step-growth polymerization.

  • enamine

    A compound containing a nitrogen atom directly connected to a carboncarbon p bond.

  • Ether

    A compound containing an oxygen atom bonded to two carbon atoms.

  • heterogeneous catalyst

    A catalyst that is in a different phase from that of the reactant substances. (Section 14.7)

  • homogeneous equilibrium

    The equilibrium established between reactant and product substances that are all in the same phase. (Section 15.4)

  • hydride shift

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

  • Hydrogenolysis

    Cleavage of a single bond by H2, most commonly accomplished by treating a compound with H2 in the presence of a transition metal catalyst.

  • molecular weight

    The mass of the collection of atoms represented by the chemical formula for a molecule. (Section 3.3)

  • Nucleophilicity

    A kinetic property measured by the rate at which a nucleophile causes nucleophilic substitution on a reference compound under a standardized set of experimental conditions.

  • Polyester

    A polymer in which each monomer unit is joined to the next by an ester bond, as, for example, poly(ethylene terephthalate).

  • 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)

  • saponification

    Hydrolysis of an ester in the presence of a base. (Section 24.4)

  • smectic liquid crystalline phase

    A liquid crystal in which the molecules are aligned along their long axes and arranged in sheets, with the ends of the molecules aligned. There are several different kinds of smectic phases. (Section 12.8)

  • sp2-hybridized orbitals

    Atomic orbitals that are achieved by mathematically averaging one s orbital with two p orbitals to form three hybridized atomic orbitals.

  • Stereocenter

    An atom, most commonly carbon, about which exchange of two groups produces a stereoisomer. Chiral centers are one type of stereocenter

  • Thiol

    A compound containing an !SH (sulfhydryl) group bonded to an sp3 -hybridized carbon.

  • Vinylic carbocation

    A double-helix model for the secondary structure of a DNA molecule

  • Zaitsev product

    The more substituted product (alkene) of an elimination reaction.
