Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • activation energy (Ea).

    The minimum amount of energy required to initiate a chemical reaction. (13.4)

  • basic oxide (basic anhydride)

    An oxide that either reacts with water to form a base or reacts with an acid to form a salt and water. (Section 22.5)

  • chemical reaction.

    A process in which a substance (or substances) is changed into one or more new substances. (3.7)

  • compound.

    A substance composed of atoms of two or more elements chemically united in fixed proportions. (1.4)

  • epoxide

    A cyclic ether containing a three-membered ring system. Also called an oxirane (also see Sect. 14.7).

  • Fluid-mosaic model

    A biological membrane that consists of a phospholipid bilayer with proteins, carbohydrates, and other lipids on the surface and embedded in the bilayer

  • gas

    Matter that has no fixed volume or shape; it conforms to the volume and shape of its container. (Section 1.2)

  • isomers

    Compounds whose molecules have the same overall composition but different structures. (Sections 2.9 and 23.4)

  • lipid

    A nonpolar molecule derived from glycerol and fatty acids that is used by organisms for long-term energy storage. (Section 24.9)

  • mass number

    The sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of a particular atom. (Section 2.3)

  • pure substance

    Matter that has a fixed composition and distinct properties. (Section 1.2)

  • reaction order

    The power to which the concentration of a reactant is raised in a rate law. (Section 14.3)

  • Reduction

    The gain of electrons. Alternatively, either the gain of hydrogen, loss of oxygen, or both

  • retention time

    The amount of time required for a compound to exit from a gas chromatograph.

  • Sanger dideoxy method

    A method developed by Frederick Sanger for sequencing DNA molecules

  • semiconductor

    A material that has electrical conductivity between that of a metal and that of an insulator. (Section 12.7)

  • SN1

    A unimolecular nucleophilic substitution reaction.

  • standard atomic weight

    The weighted averages for each element, which takes into account isotopic abundance.

  • tetrahedral intermediate

    An intermediate with tetrahedral geometry. This type of intermediate is formed when a nucleophile attacks the carbonyl group of a carboxylic acid derivative.

  • twist boat

    A conformation of cyclohexane that is lower in energy than a boat conformation but higher in energy than a chair conformation.
