Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • anti conformation

    A conformation in which the dihedral angle between two groups is 180°.

  • bond order

    The number of bonding electron pairs shared between two atoms, minus the number of antibonding electron pairs: bond order = (number of bonding electrons - number of antibonding electrons)/2. (Section 9.7)

  • chemical properties

    Properties that describe a substance’s composition and its reactivity; how the substance reacts or changes into other substances. (Section 1.3)

  • closest packing.

    The most efficient arrangements for packing atoms, molecules, or ions in a crystal. (11.4)

  • Geminal coupling

    Spin-spin coupling that occurs between nonequivalent H atoms bonded to the same C atom. The H atoms are generally nonequivalent owing to restricted bond rotation in the molecule

  • halogenation

    A reaction that involves the addition of X2 (either Br2 or Cl2) across an alkene.

  • Heat of combustion (DH0 )

    Standard heat of combustion is the heat released when one mole of a substance in its standard state (gas, liquid, solid) is oxidized completely to carbon dioxide and water.

  • immiscible liquids

    Liquids that do not dissolve in one another to a significant extent. (Section 13.3)

  • isoelectronic series

    A series of atoms, ions, or molecules having the same number of electrons. (Section 7.3)

  • mass-to-charge ratio(m/z)

    Thedetermining factor by which ions are separatedfrom each other in mass spectrometry.

  • nuclear disintegration series

    A series of nuclear reactions that begins with an unstable nucleus and terminates with a stable one; also called a radioactive series. (Section 21.2)

  • nucleotide

    Compounds formed from a molecule of phosphoric acid, a sugar molecule, and an organic nitrogen base. Nucleotides form linear polymers called DNA and RNA, which are involved in protein synthesis and cell reproduction. (Section 24.10)

  • Oxonium ion

    An ion in which oxygen bears a positive charge.

  • Pi (p) bond

    A covalent bond formed by the overlap of parallel 2p orbitals.

  • quaternary structure

    The structure of a protein resulting from the clustering of several individual protein chains into a final specific shape. (Section 24.7)

  • reaction mechanism

    A detailed picture, or model, of how the reaction occurs; that is, the order in which bonds are broken and formed and the changes in relative positions of the atoms as the reaction proceeds. (Section 14.6)

  • root-mean-square (rms) speed 1M2

    The square root of the average of the squared speeds of the gas molecules in a gas sample. (Section 10.7)

  • Schiemann reaction

    The conversion of an aryl diazonium salt into fluorobenzene upon treatment with fluoroboric acid (HBF4).

  • structural proteins

    Fibrous proteins that are used for their structural rigidity. Examples include a-keratins found in hair, nails, skin, feathers, and wool.

  • Thermoplastic

    A polymer that can be melted and molded into a shape that is retained when it is cooled.
