Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • antiaromatic

    Instability that arises when a planar ring of continuously overlapping p orbitals contains 4n p electrons.

  • Bicycloalkane

    An alkane containing two rings that share two carbons

  • boranes

    Covalent hydrides of boron. (Section 22.11)

  • cell potential

    The potential difference between the cathode and anode in an electrochemical cell; it is measured in volts: 1 V = 1 J>C. Also called electromotive force. (Section 20.4)

  • column chromatography

    A technique by which compounds are separated from each other based on a difference in the way they interact with the medium (the adsorbent) through which they are passed.

  • Delocalization

    The spreading of electron density over a larger volume of space.

  • deuterium

    The isotope of hydrogen whose nucleus contains a proton and a neutron: 2 1H. (Section 22.2)

  • Dispersion forces

    Very weak intermolecular forces of attraction resulting from the interaction between temporary induced dipoles

  • Double-headed arrow

    A symbol used to show that structures on either side of it are resonance-contributing structures

  • fatty acids

    Long-chain carboxylic acids.

  • hybridization

    The mixing of different types of atomic orbitals to produce a set of equivalent hybrid orbitals. (Section 9.5)

  • kinetics

    A term that refers to the rate of a reaction.

  • phospholipid

    A form of lipid molecule that contains charged phosphate groups. (Section 24.9)

  • polarizability

    The ease with which the electron cloud of an atom or a molecule is distorted by an outside influence, thereby inducing a dipole moment. (Section 11.2)

  • Pyranose

    A six-membered cyclic form of a monosaccharide.

  • retention time

    The amount of time required for a compound to exit from a gas chromatograph.

  • reverse osmosis

    The process by which water molecules move under high pressure through a semipermeable membrane from the more concentrated to the less concentrated solution. (Section 18.4)

  • Sanger dideoxy method

    A method developed by Frederick Sanger for sequencing DNA molecules

  • Secondary structure of proteins

    The ordered arrangements (conformations) of amino acids in localized regions of a polypeptide or protein

  • solution

    A mixture of substances that has a uniform composition; a homogeneous mixture. (Section 1.2)
