Solutions for Chapter Chapter 1: The Chemical World
Full solutions for Introductory Chemistry | 4th Edition
Hydrocarbons that do not contain the benzene group or the benzene ring. (24.1)
alkaline earth metals
Members of group 2A in the periodic table. (Section 7.7)
A synthetic method that employs diethyl acetamidomalonate as the starting material and enables the preparation of racemic a-amino acids.
Compound containing only carbon, chlorine, and fluorine.
A substance formed by addition of a proton to a Brønsted–Lowry base. (Section 16.2)
Representations of a molecule or ion that differ only in the distribution of valence electrons.
A region of a polymer inwhich the chains are linearly extended and closein proximity to one another, resulting in van der Waals forces that hold the chains close together.
A monosaccharide that, when written as a Fischer projection, has the !OH on its penultimate carbon to the right.
An ionic compound that is formed upon treatment of a primary amine with NaNO2 and HCl.
The lowest energy state of a system.
The time required for the concentration of a reactant substance to decrease to half its initial value; the time required for half of a sample of a particular radioisotope to decay. (Sections 14.4 and 21.4)
High-density lipoprotein (HDL)
Plasma particles, density 1.06–1.21 g/mL, consisting of approximately 33% proteins, 30% cholesterol, 29% phospholipids, and 8% triglycerides.
A reaction in which bonds are cleaved by treatment with water.
A compound in which the carbonyl group 1C “O2 occurs at the interior of a carbon chain and is therefore flanked by carbon atoms. (Section 24.4)
A Lewis base bonded to a metal atom in a coordination compound. It may bond strongly or weakly.
metallic elements (metals)
Elements that are usually solids at room temperature, exhibit high electrical and heat conductivity, and appear lustrous. Most of the elements in the periodic table are metals. (Sections 2.5 and 12.1)
A ligand in which two or more donor atoms can coordinate to the same metal ion. (Section 23.3)
A term used to designate the configuration of a chirality center, determined in the following way: Each of the four groups is assigned a priority, and the molecule is then rotated (if necessary) so that the #4 group is directed behind the page (on a dash). A clockwise sequence for 1-2-3 is designated as R.
Secondary (2°) amine
An amine in which nitrogen is bonded to two carbons and one hydrogen
The energy required to pair an electron with another electron occupying an orbital. (Section 23.6)
