Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • block copolymer

    A copolymer in which the different homopolymer subunits are connected together in one chain.

  • buffered solution (buffer)

    A solution that undergoes a limited change in pH upon addition of a small amount of acid or base. (Section 17.2)

  • Carbenoid

    A compound that delivers the elements of a carbene without actually producing a free carbene.

  • chlor-alkali process.

    The production of chlorine gas by the electrolysis of aqueous NaCl solution. (22.6)

  • density

    The ratio of an object’s mass to its volume. (Section 1.4)

  • half-life

    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)

  • kinetic control

    A reaction for which the product distribution is determined by the relative rates at which the products are formed.

  • natural gas

    A naturally occurring mixture of gaseous hydrocarbon compounds composed of hydrogen and carbon. (Section 5.8)

  • Nucleic acid

    A biopolymer containing three types of monomer units: heterocyclic aromatic amine bases derived from purine and pyrimidine, the monosaccharides d-ribose or 2-deoxy-d-ribose, and phosphoric acid

  • nucleon

    A particle found in the nucleus of an atom. (Section 21.1)

  • photosynthesis

    The process that occurs in plant leaves by which light energy is used to convert carbon dioxide and water to carbohydrates and oxygen. (Section 23.3)

  • propagation

    For radical reactions,the steps whose sum gives the net chemical reaction.

  • retention of configuration

    During a reaction, when the configuration of a chirality center remains unchanged.

  • ring flip

    A conformational change in which one chair conformation is converted into the other.

  • saturated hydrocarbon

    A hydrocarbon that contains no p bonds.

  • single bond

    A covalent bond involving one electron pair. (Section 8.3)

  • standard atomic weight

    The weighted averages for each element, which takes into account isotopic abundance.

  • tertiary alkyl halide

    An organohalide in which the alpha (a) position is connected to three alkyl groups.

  • vibrational excitation

    In IR spectroscopy, the energy of a photon is absorbed and temporarily stored as vibrational energy

  • Wave function

    A solution to a set of equations that defi nes the energy of an electron in an atom and the region of space it may occupy.
