Summary of Chapter 6: Reactions of Alkenes

All alkenes have a common feature: a carbon–carbon double bond. The reactions of alkenes arise from the reactivity of the carbon–carbon double bond. Once again, the concept of the functional group helps to organize and simplify the study of chemical reactions. By studying the characteristic reactions of the double bond, we can predict the reactions of alkenes we have never seen before.

Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • alpha decay

    A type of radioactive decay in which an atomic nucleus emits an alpha particle and thereby transforms (or “decays”) into an atom with a mass number 4 less and atomic number 2 less. (Section 21.1)

  • Aufbau principle.

    As protons are added one by one to the nucleus to build up the elements, electrons similarly are added to the atomic orbitals. (7.9)

  • bending

    In IR spectroscopy, a type of vibration that generally produces a signal in the fingerprint region of an IR spectrum.

  • deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA).

    A type of nucleic acid. (25.4)

  • electromotive force (emf)

    A measure of the driving force, or electrical pressure, for the completion of an electrochemical reaction. Electromotive force is measured in volts: 1 V = 1 J>C. Also called the cell potential. (Section 20.4)

  • electrophoresis

    A technique for separating amino acids from each other based on a difference in pI values.

  • galvanic cell

    See voltaic cell. (Section 20.3)

  • Hertz (Hz)

    The unit in which frequency is measured: s 21 (read “per second”).

  • hydroperoxide

    A compound with the structure R!O!O!H.

  • Mass spectrum

    A plot of the relative abundance of ions versus their mass-to-charge ratio

  • octet rule

    A rule stating that bonded atoms tend to possess or share a total of eight valence-shell electrons. (Section 8.1)

  • Primary (1°) amine

    An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to one carbon and two hydrogens

  • quantitative analysis

    The determination of the amount of a given substance that is present in a sample. (Section 17.7)

  • quaternary structure

    The structure of a protein resulting from the clustering of several individual protein chains into a final specific shape. (Section 24.7)

  • rare earth element

    See lanthanide element. (Sections 6.8 and 6.9)

  • regiochemistry

    A term describing a consideration that must be taken into account for a reaction in which two or more constitutional isomers can be formed.

  • Sanger dideoxy method

    A method developed by Frederick Sanger for sequencing DNA molecules

  • simple lipid

    A lipid that does not undergo hydrolysis in aqueous acid or base to produce smaller fragments.

  • singlet

    In NMR spectroscopy, a signal that is comprised of only one peak.

  • Valence Bond Theory

    A model of bonding that places electron pairs between adjacent atoms to create bonds.
