Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absorbance (A)

    A quantitative measure of the extent to which a compound absorbs radiation of a particular wavelength. A 5 log (I0/I ) where I0 is the incident radiation and I is the transmitted radiation

  • beta (b) position

    The position immediately adjacent to an alpha (a) position.

  • blocking group

    A group that can be readily installed and uninstalled. Used for regiochemical control during synthesis.

  • carboxylic acid

    A compound that contains the ¬COOH functional group. (Sections 16.10 and 24.4)

  • chemical kinetics.

    The area of chemistry concerned with the speeds, or rates, at which chemical reactions occur. (13.1)

  • chemical nomenclature

    The rules used in naming substances. (Section 2.8)

  • chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)

    Compound containing only carbon, chlorine, and fluorine.

  • Cis, trans isomers

    Stereoisomers that have the same connectivity but a different arrangement of their atoms in space as a result of the presence of either a ring or a carboncarbon double bond.

  • Condensation polymerization

    A polymerization in which chain growth occurs in a stepwise manner between difunctional monomers. Also called step-growth polymerization.

  • conjugate acid

    A substance formed by addition of a proton to a Brønsted–Lowry base. (Section 16.2)

  • Eclipsed conformation

    A conformation about a carboncarbon single bond in which the atoms or groups on one carbon are as close as possible to the atoms or groups on an adjacent carbon.

  • Fat

    A mixture of triglycerides that is semisolid or solid at room temperature.

  • Ground-state electron confi guration

    The lowest-energy electron confi guration for an atom or molecule.

  • lattice points

    Points in a crystal all of which have identical environments. (Section 12.2)

  • meso compound

    A compound that possesses chirality centers and an internal plane of symmetry.

  • Mutarotation

    The change in specifi c rotation that occurs when an a or b hemiacetal form of a carbohydrate in aqueous solution is converted to an equilibrium mixture of the two forms.

  • prostaglandins

    Lipids that contain 20 carbon atoms and are characterized by a five-membered ring with two side chains.

  • rotational motion

    Movement of a molecule as though it is spinning like a top. (Section 19.3)

  • singlet

    In NMR spectroscopy, a signal that is comprised of only one peak.

  • syndiotactic

    A polymer in which the repeating units contain chirality centers which have alternating configuration.
