Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • antibonding molecular orbital

    A molecular orbital in which electron density is concentrated outside the region between the two nuclei of bonded atoms. Such orbitals, designated as s* or p*, are less stable (of higher energy) than bonding molecular orbitals. (Section 9.7)

  • Arrhenius equation

    An equation that relates the rate constant for a reaction to the frequency factor, A, the activation energy, Ea, and the temperature, T: k = Ae-Ea>RT. In its logarithmic form it is written ln k = -Ea>RT + ln A. (Section 14.5)

  • atmospheric pressure.

    The pressure exerted by Earth’s atmosphere. (5.2)

  • Atropisomers

    Enantiomers that lack a chiral center and differ because of hindered rotation.

  • base.

    A substance that yields hydroxide ions (OH2) when dissolved in water. (2.7)

  • Benzyne intermediate

    A reactive intermediate formed by b-elimination from adjacent carbon atoms of a benzene ring and having a triple bond in the benzene ring. The second p bond of the benzyne triple bond is formed by the weak overlap of coplanar 2p orbitals on adjacent carbons.

  • biodegradable

    Organic material that bacteria are able to oxidize. (Section 18.4)

  • curved arrows

    Tools that are used for drawing resonance structures and for showing the flow of electron density during each step of a reaction mechanism.

  • dipole–dipole force

    A force that becomes significant when polar molecules come in close contact with one another. The force is attractive when the positive end of one polar molecule approaches the negative end of another. (Section 11.2)

  • Double helix

    A type of secondary structure of DNA molecules in which two anti parallel polynucleotide strands are coiled in a right-handed manner about the same axis

  • gauche conformation

    A conformation that exhibits a gauche interaction.

  • Hammond’s postulate

    The structure of the transition state for an exothermic step looks more like the reactants of that step than the products. Conversely, the structure of the transition state for an endothermic step looks more like the products of that step than the reactants.

  • heat of reaction

    The heat given off during a reaction.

  • indicator

    A substance added to a solution that changes color when the added solute has reacted with all the solute present in solution. The most common type of indicator is an acid–base indicator whose color changes as a function of pH. (Section 4.6)

  • net ionic equation

    A chemical equation for a solution reaction in which soluble strong electrolytes are written as ions and spectator ions are omitted. (Section 4.2)

  • Photosensitizer

    A compound that absorbs light and transfers the energy to another molecule.

  • polarizability

    The ease with which the electron cloud of an atom or a molecule is distorted by an outside influence, thereby inducing a dipole moment. (Section 11.2)

  • protium

    The most common isotope of hydrogen. (Section 22.2)

  • steric number

    The total of (single bonds + lone pairs) for an atom in a compound.

  • terminal alkynes

    Compounds with the following structure: R!C#C!H
