Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • addition reaction

    A reaction in which a reagent adds to the two carbon atoms of a carbon–carbon multiple bond. (Section 24.3)

  • arenium ion

    The positively charged, resonance-stabilized, intermediate of anelectrophilic aromatic substitution reaction. Also called a sigma complex.

  • Axial bond

    A bond to a chair conformation of cyclohexane that extends from the ring parallel to the imaginary axis through the center of the ring; a bond that lies roughly perpendicular to the equator of the ring.

  • cathodic protection

    A means of protecting a metal against corrosion by making it the cathode in a voltaic cell. This can be achieved by attaching a more easily oxidized metal, which serves as an anode, to the metal to be protected. (Section 20.8)

  • Cope rearrangement

    A [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement in which all six atoms of the cyclic transition state are carbon atoms.

  • Diastereotopic groups

    Atoms or groups on an atom that are bonded to an atom that is bonded to two nonidentical groups, one of which contains a chiral center. When one of the atoms or groups is replaced by another group, a new chiral center is created and a set of diastereomers results. The hydrogens of the CH2 group of 2-butanol, for example, are diastereotopic. Diastereotopic groups have different chemical shifts under all conditions

  • diborane

    B2H6. A dimeric structure formed when one borane molecule reacts with another.

  • E1

    A unimolecular b-elimination reaction

  • enamine

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

  • first-order reaction

    A reaction in which the reaction rate is proportional to the concentration of a single reactant, raised to the first power. (Section 14.4)

  • fuel cell

    A voltaic cell that utilizes the oxidation of a conventional fuel, such as H2 or CH4, in the cell reaction. (Section 20.7)

  • Haloalkane (alkyl halide)

    A compound containing a halogen atom covalently bonded to an sp3 -hybridized carbon atom. Given the symbol R!X.

  • Meta (m)

    Refers to groups occupying 1,3-positions on a benzene ring.

  • ortho

    On an aromatic ring, the C2 position.

  • oxidizing agent, or oxidant

    The substance that is reduced and thereby causes the oxidation of some other substance in an oxidation–reduction reaction. (Section 20.1)

  • plane of symmetry

    A plane that bisects a compound into two halves that are mirror images of each other.

  • Transfer RNA (tRNA

    A ribonucleic acid that carries a specifi c amino acid to the site of protein synthesis on ribosomes

  • Unimolecular reaction

    A reaction in which only one species is involved in the rate-determining step

  • Williamson ether synthesis

    A method for preparing an ether from an alkoxide ion and an alkyl halide (via an SN2 process).

  • Wolff-Kishner reduction

    A method for converting a carbonyl group into a methylene group (CH2) under basic conditions.
