Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • active site

    Specific site on a heterogeneous catalyst or an enzyme where catalysis occurs. (Section 14.7)

  • Alditol

    The product formed when the C"O group of a monosaccharide is reduced to a CHOH group.

  • Aliphatic amine

    An amine in which nitrogen is bonded only to alkyl groups.

  • amine

    A compound that has the general formula R3N, where R may be H or a hydrocarbon group. (Section 16.7)

  • anti-periplanar

    A conformation in which a hydrogen atom and a leaving group are separated by a dihedral angle of approximately 180°.

  • aromatic

    A compound containing a planar ring of continuously overlapping p orbitals with 4n+2p electrons.

  • chain-growth polymer

    A polymer that is formed under conditions in which the monomers do not react directly with each other, but rather, each monomer is added to the growing chain, one at a time.

  • Codon

    A triplet of nucleotides on mRNA that directs incorporation of a specifi c amino acid into a polypeptide sequence.

  • decarboxylation

    A reaction involving loss of CO2, characteristic of compounds containing a carbonyl group that is beta to a COOH group.

  • dextrorotatory

    A compound that rotates plane-polarized light in a clockwise direction (+).

  • Electron affinity

    Energy added or released when an electron is added to an atom or molecule.

  • Fischer esterification

    A process in which a carboxylic acid is converted into an ester when treated with an alcohol in the presence of an acid catalyst.

  • Gauche conformation

    A conformation about a single bond of an alkane in which two groups on adjacent carbons lie at a dihedral angle of 60°

  • Hofmann elimination

    A reaction in which an amino group is treated with excess methyl iodide, thereby converting it into an excellent leaving group, followed by treatment with a strong base to give an E2 reaction that yields an alkene.

  • instantaneous rate

    The reaction rate at a particular time as opposed to the average rate over an interval of time. (Section 14.2)

  • ionization energy

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

  • l sugar

    A carbohydrate for which the chirality center farthest from the carbonyl group will have an OH group pointing to the left in the Fischer projection.

  • phenolate

    The conjugate base of phenol or a substituted phenol.

  • photon

    The smallest increment (a quantum) of radiant energy; a photon of light with frequency n has an energy equal to hn. (Section 6.2)

  • saturated

    A compound that contains no p bonds.
