Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • acetylide ion

    The conjugate base of acetylene or any terminal alkyne.

  • alkynide ion

    The conjugate base of a terminal alkyne.

  • Antibonding molecular orbital

    A molecular orbital in which electrons have a higher energy than they would in isolated atomic orbitals

  • Axial bond

    A bond to a chair conformation of cyclohexane that extends from the ring parallel to the imaginary axis through the center of the ring; a bond that lies roughly perpendicular to the equator of the ring.

  • basic oxide (basic anhydride)

    An oxide that either reacts with water to form a base or reacts with an acid to form a salt and water. (Section 22.5)

  • critical pressure

    The pressure at which a gas at its critical temperature is converted to a liquid state. (Section 11.4)

  • Decarboxylation

    Loss of CO2 from a carboxyl group.

  • density.

    The mass of a substance divided by its volume. (1.6)

  • Diamagnetic current in NMR

    The circulation of electron density in a molecule in an applied magnetic fi eld.

  • disulfide

    A compound with the structure R!S!S!R.

  • energy-level diagram

    A diagram that shows the energies of molecular orbitals relative to the atomic orbitals from which they are derived. Also called a molecular-orbital diagram. (Section 9.7)

  • Fourier transform NMR (FT-NMR)

    The modern NMR method that is based on a constant magnetic fi eld, a short pulse of electromagnetic radiation, and a mathematical Fourier transform to produce the spectrum

  • hydrophobic

    A nonpolar group that does not have favorable interactions with water.

  • induction

    The withdrawal of electron density that occurs when a bond is shared by two atoms of differing electronegativity.

  • internal alkyne

    A compound with the structure R!C#C!R, where each R group is not a hydrogen atom.

  • Messenger RNA (mRNA)

    A ribonucleic acid that carries coded genetic information from DNA to the ribosomes for the synthesis of proteins

  • Molecular orbital (MO) theory

    A theory of chemical bonding in which electrons in molecules occupy molecular orbitals that extend over the entire molecule and are formed by the combination of the atomic orbitals that make up the molecule

  • nitrogen rule

    In mass spectrometry, an odd molecular weight indicates an odd number of nitrogen atoms in the compound, while an even molecular weight indicates either an even number of nitrogen atoms or the absence of nitrogen.

  • period

    The row of elements that lie in a horizontal row in the periodic table. (Section 2.5)

  • polyether

    A compound containing several ether groups.
