Full solutions for Living by Chemistry | 2nd Edition
The addition of H2 across only one face of a p bond.
An array of closely spaced molecular orbitals occupying a discrete range of energy. (Section 12.4)
Addition of a nucleophile to the b-carbon of an a,b-unsaturated carbonyl compound. (Section 20.2A) Addition to carbons 1 and 4 of a conjugated diene.
A compound containing a metal ion bonded to a group of surrounding molecules or ions that act as ligands. (Section 23.2)
crystal field splitting (D).
The energy difference between two sets of d orbitals in a metal atom when ligands are present. (23.5)
Dalton’s law of partial pressures.
The total pressure of a mixture of gases is just the sum of the pressures that each gas would exert if it were present alone. (5.6)
A unimolecular elimination reaction.
A process in a chemical reaction that occurs in a single step. An overall chemical reaction consists of one or more elementary reactions or steps. (Section 14.6)
Female sex hormones.
An OH group.
A polymer in which the repeating units contain chirality centers which all have the same configuration.
On an aromatic ring, the C2 position.
A cyclic ether containing a three-membered ring system. Also called an epoxide.
The name given to O3, an allotrope of oxygen. (Section 7.8)
Reversibly creating an unreactive group for the purpose of preventing a functional group from potentially reacting to give an unwanted product or products
The conversion of a ketone or aldehyde into an imine under conditions in which the imine is reduced as soon as it is formed, giving an amine.
A compound that can be used to achieve the resolution of enantiomers.
resonance structures (resonance forms)
Individual Lewis structures in cases where two or more Lewis structures are equally good descriptions of a single molecule. The resonance structures in such an instance are “averaged” to give a more accurate description of the real molecule. (Section 8.6)
retro Diels-Alder reaction
The reverse of a Diels-Alder reaction, achieved at high temperature. A cyclohexene derivative is converted into a diene and a dienophile.
The manner in which a protein is coiled or stretched. (Section 24.7)
