Summary of Chapter 18: Organic Chemistry

Our reaction to certain smells, positive or negative, is probably an evolutionary adaptation. The pleasant smell of cinnamon tells us that it is good to eat. The unpleasant smell of rotting fish tells us that it has become spoiled and that we should avoid it.

Since 114 problems in chapter 18: Organic Chemistry have been answered, more than 1606235 students have viewed full step-by-step solutions from this chapter.

This expansive textbook survival guide covers the following chapters and their solutions. Chapter 18: Organic Chemistry includes 114 full step-by-step solutions.

Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • alpha 1A2 helix

    A protein structure in which the protein is coiled in the form of a helix with hydrogen bonds between C “O and N ¬H groups on adjacent turns. (Section 24.7)

  • electron capture

    A mode of radioactive decay in which an inner-shell orbital electron is captured by the nucleus. (Section 21.1)

  • Fatty acid

    A long, unbranched-chain carboxylic acid, most commonly of 12 to 20 carbons, derived from the hydrolysis of animal fats, vegetable oils, or the phospholipids of biological membranes.

  • Gibbs free energy (G)

    The ultimate arbiter of the spontaneity of a reaction, where DG = DH - T DS.

  • heat capacity

    The quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of a sample of matter by 1 °C (or 1 K). (Section 5.5)

  • Hydrophobic effect

    The tendency of nonpolar groups to cluster so as to shield them from contact with an aqueous environment.

  • ionization energy

    The energy required to remove an electron from a gaseous atom when the atom is in its ground state. (Section 7.4)

  • Low-resolution mass spectrometry

    Instrumentation that is capable of separating only ions that differ in mass by 1 or more amu.

  • mass spectrometer

    A device inwhich a compound is first vaporized and convertedinto ions, which are then separated anddetected.

  • Mass spectrometry

    An analytical technique for measuring the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of ions.

  • microstate

    The state of a system at a particular instant; one of many possible energetically equivalent ways to arrange the components of a system to achieve a particular state. (Section 19.3)

  • nucleophilic acyl substitution

    A reaction in which a nucleophile attacks a carboxylic acid derivative.

  • Nucleophilic substitution

    Any reaction in which one nucleophile is substituted for another at a tetravalent carbon atom.

  • Phenyl group

    A group derived by removing an H from benzene; abbreviated C6H5! or Ph!.

  • physiological pH

    The pH of blood (approximately 7.3).

  • precision

    The closeness of agreement among several measurements of the same quantity; the reproducibility of a measurement. (Section 1.5)

  • Principle of microscopic reversibility

    This principle states that the sequence of transition states and reactive intermediates in the mechanism of any reversible reaction must be the same, but in reverse order, for the reverse reaction as for the forward reaction

  • secondary alkyl halide

    An organohalide in which the alpha (a) position is connected to exactly two alkyl groups.

  • symmetry allowed

    A reaction that obeys conservation of orbital symmetry.

  • Z (Section 5.2C)

    From the German, zusammen, meaning opposite. Specifi es that groups of higher priority on the carbons of a double bond are on the same side
