Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • aldol condensation

    An aldol addition followed by dehydration to give an a,bunsaturated ketone or aldehyde.

  • Alkene metathesis

    A reaction in which two alkenes interchange the carbons attached to their double bonds.

  • Autoxidation

    Air oxidation of materials such as unsaturated fatty acids.

  • Cyanohydrin

    A molecule containing an !OH group and a !CN group bonded to the same carbon.

  • Diaxial interactions

    Refers to the steric strain arising from interaction between an axial substituent and an axial hydrogen (or other group) on the same side of a chair conformation of a cyclohexane ring

  • diazonium salt

    An ionic compound that is formed upon treatment of a primary amine with NaNO2 and HCl.

  • downfield

    The left side of an NMR spectrum.

  • Edman degradatio

    A method for selectively cleaving and identifying the N-terminal amino acid of a polypeptide chain.

  • electron density

    A term associatedwith the probability of finding an electron in aparticular region of space.

  • f-block metals

    Lanthanide and actinide elements in which the 4f or 5f orbitals are partially occupied. (Section 6.9)

  • high-resolution mass spectrometry

    A technique that involves the use of a detector that can measure the m/z values to four decimal places.This technique allows for the determination of the molecular formula of an unknown compound.

  • intermetallic compound

    A homogeneous alloy with definite properties and a fixed composition. Intermetallic compounds are stoichiometric compounds that form between metallic elements. (Section 12.3)

  • nonmetallic elements (nonmetals)

    Elements in the upper right corner of the periodic table; nonmetals differ from metals in their physical and chemical properties. (Section 2.5)

  • Nucleophile

    From the Greek meaning nucleus-loving. Any species that can donate a pair of electrons to form a new covalent bond; alternatively, a Lewis base

  • ortho

    On an aromatic ring, the C2 position.

  • scientific method

    The general process of advancing scientific knowledge by making experimental observations and by formulating hypotheses, theories, and laws. (Section 1.3)

  • Solvolysis

    A nucleophilic substitution in which the solvent is also the nucleophile

  • sp-hybridized

    Atomic orbitals that are achieved by mathematically averaging one s orbital with only one p orbital to form two hybridized atomic orbitals.

  • tertiary

    A term used to indicate that exactly three alkyl groups are attached directly to a particular position. For example, a tertiary carbocation has three alkyl groups attached directly to the electrophilic carbon atom (C+).

  • Tesla (T)

    The SI unit for magnetic fi eld strength.
