The difference in Gibbs free energy between reactants and a transition state
A resonance-stabilized cation with the structure [RC"O]1 or [ArC"O]1. The positive charge is delocalized over both the carbonyl carbon and the carbonyl oxygen.
A compound that contains at least one amino group and at least one carboxyl group. (25.3)
Bonding molecular orbital
A molecular orbital in which electrons have a lower energy than they would in isolated atomic orbitals
The electrode at which reduction occurs. (18.2)
A conjugated diene or carbonyl is one in which the double bonds are separated by one single bond
coupling (of protons)
A phenomenon observed most commonly for nonequivalent protons connected to adjacent carbon atoms in which the multiplicity of each signal is affected by the other.
A carbohydrate for whichthe chirality center farthest from the carbonylgroup will have an OH group pointing to theright in the Fischer projection.
Similarities between pairs of elements in different groups and periods of the periodic table. (8.6)
Light and other forms of radiant energy.
A chemical formula that shows the kinds of atoms and their relative numbers in a substance in the smallest possible whole-number ratios. (Section 2.6)
A process in which a system absorbs heat from its surroundings. (Section 5.2)
Strands of a polymer that are generated when the polymer is heated, forced through small holes, and then cooled.
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
frontier orbital theory
The analysis of a reaction using MO theory, where only the frontier orbitals (HOMO and LUMO) are considered.
A substance added to a solution that changes color when the added solute has reacted with all the solute present in solution. The most common type of indicator is an acid–base indicator whose color changes as a function of pH. (Section 4.6)
A biomolecule isolated from plant or animal sources by extraction with nonpolar organic solvents, such as diethyl ether and hexane.
Anything that occupies space and has mass; the physical material of the universe. (Section 1.1)
A phosphoric monoester, which is the simplest kind of phosphoglyceride.
A polymer that can be molded when hot and retains its shape when cooled
