Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • a-Helix

    A type of secondary structure in which a section of polypeptide chain coils into a spiral, most commonly a right-handed spiral.

  • aldonic acid

    The product obtained when the aldehyde group of an aldose is oxidized.

  • alkoxide

    The conjugate base of an alcohol.

  • amplitude.

    The vertical distance from the middle of a wave to the peak or trough. (7.1)

  • biodegradable

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

  • Carbonyl group (Section 1.3C)

    A C"O group.

  • chemistry

    The scientific discipline that studies the composition, properties, and transformations of matter. (Chapter 1: Introduction)

  • conjugate acid–base pair

    An acid and a base, such as H2O and OH-, that differ only in the presence or absence of a proton. (Section 16.2)

  • Dehydration

    Elimination of water.

  • divalent

    An element that forms two bonds, such as oxygen.

  • electrocyclic reaction

    A pericyclic process in which a conjugated polyene undergoes cyclization. In the process, one p bond is converted into a s bond, while the remaining p bonds all change their location. The newly formed s bond joins the ends of the original p system,thereby creating a ring.

  • enantiotopic

    Protons that are not interchangeable by rotational symmetry but are interchangeable by reflectional symmetry.

  • Graham’s law

    A law stating that the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molecular weight. (Section 10.8)

  • line spectrum

    A spectrum that contains radiation at only certain specific wavelengths. (Section 6.3)

  • N-Terminal amino acid

    The amino acid at the end of a polypeptide chain having the free !NH2 group

  • Ortho

    Refers to groups occupying l,2-positions on a benzene ring.

  • progestins

    Female sex hormones.

  • prosthetic group

    A nonprotein unit attached to a protein, such as heme in hemoglobin.

  • radical inhibitor

    A compound that prevents a radical chain process from either getting started or continuing.

  • Triglyceride (triacylglycerol)

    An ester of glycerol with three fatty acids
