A solid solution composed of two or more metals, or of a metal or metals with one or more nonmetals. (21.2)
A conformation about a single bond in which two groups on adjacent carbons lie at a dihedral angle of 180°.
A polymerization that involves sequential addition reactions, either to unsaturated monomers or to monomers possessing other reactive functional groups.
A three-dimensional shape that can be adopted by a compound as a result of rotation about single bonds.
An addition reaction in which a nucleophile and a proton are added across the two ends of a conjugated p system.

electromagnetic radiation (radiant energy)
A form of energy that has wave characteristics and that propagates through a vacuum at the characteristic speed of 3.00 * 108 m >s. (Section 6.1)
A compound with hydroxyl (!OH) groups on adjacent carbons.
A process performed in the presence of hydrogen gas by which large alkanes in petroleum are converted into smaller alkanes that are more suitable for use as gasoline.
