Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • anti-periplanar

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

  • C-Terminal amino acid

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

  • calcination

    The heating of an ore to bring about its decomposition and the elimination of a volatile product. For example, a carbonate ore might be calcined to drive off CO2. (Section 23.2)

  • chelating agent

    A polydentate ligand that is capable of occupying two or more sites in the coordination sphere. (Section 23.3)

  • Constitutional isomers

    Compounds with the same molecular formula but a different connectivity of their atoms

  • diagonal relationship.

    Similarities between pairs of elements in different groups and periods of the periodic table. (8.6)

  • energy

    The capacity to do work or to transfer heat. (Section 5.1)

  • frequency factor (A)

    A term in the Arrhenius equation that is related to the frequency of collision and the probability that the collisions are favorably oriented for reaction. (Section 14.5)

  • ground state

    The lowest-energy, or most stable, state. (Section 6.3)

  • lanthanide (rare earth) element

    Element in which the 4f subshell is only partially occupied. (Sections 6.8 and 6.9)

  • line spectrum

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

  • optical isomerism

    A form of isomerism in which the two forms of a compound (stereoisomers) are nonsuperimposable mirror images. (Section 23.4)

  • Photons

    An alternative way to describe electromagnetic radiation as a stream of particles

  • polycarbonates

    Polymers that are similar in structure to polyesters but with repeating carbonate groups (!O!CO2!) instead of repeating ester groups (!CO2!). polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

  • Polysaccharide

    A carbohydrate containing a large number of monosaccharide units, each joined to the next by one or more glycosidic bonds.

  • resonance

    A method that chemists use to deal with the inadequacy of bond-line drawings.

  • second law of thermodynamics

    A statement of our experience that there is a direction to the way events occur in nature. When a process occurs spontaneously in one direction, it is nonspontaneous in the reverse direction. It is possible to state the second law in many different forms, but they all relate back to the same idea about spontaneity. One of the most common statements found in chemical contexts is that in any spontaneous process the entropy of the universe increases. (Section 19.2)

  • systematic name

    A name that is assigned using the rules of IUPAC nomenclature.

  • Valence electrons

    Electrons in the valence (outermost) shell of an atom.

  • Zwitterion

    An internal salt of an amino acid; the carboxylate is negatively charged, and the ammonium group is positively charged
